Keith enjoys anything outside, hiking, skiing (both season dependent), and jumping off giant rocks into questionably cold water.

rustin_greenstreetRustin Greenstreet
Senior Account Executive

Rustin Greenstreet has been with Sanity and serving his clients since 2007. Rustin is one of the original members of the Sanity Solutions Account Executive team at our headquarters in Denver. Like others, it wasn’t Sanity that drew Rustin to Colorado, but comparably warmer winters than Wisconsin where he grew up. Rustin received his degree in Marketing Education from the University of Wisconsin.

Rustin previously was an account executive at a telecom ISP provider based in Colorado Springs. Rustin's experience in the technology field made the transition to Sanity seamless. Rustin was drawn to Sanity because he wanted to further his efforts into enterprise technology and was, and still is, intrigued by the industry's endless potential for growth.

As a shareholder of the Green Bay Packers, Rustin can also add Super Bowl winning franchise owner to his resume. More impressively, he coached his daughter's t-ball team to an undefeated season. True, they don’t keep score, but you know who won.
