Michael L. Keiser, also known as Mike, Co-Founded Recycled Paper Greetings, Inc. in 1971. Mr. Keiser served as Chairman of Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago since 2006. He serves as a Director of Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Inc.
Mike Keiser made his fortune in Chicago, co-founding a greeting card company that was sold for nine figures. Working from offices in Chicago, he then gained his fame as a golf course developer, constructing courses in Oregon, Michigan, Canada and Australia.
And then there's Keiser's Sand Valley resort. Designed by famed course architects Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore—the team that designed Keiser's Bandon Dunes Golf Resort on Oregon's Pacific coast—the site could eventually expand to five courses, about an hour's drive north of Madison, near Wisconsin Rapids.
Keiser got to Chicago in 1971 after four years of service in the U.S. Navy. He then reunited with an Amherst College classmate, Phil Friedmann, to start Recycled Paper Greetings in an apartment in Lakeview.
