Gleisner was born on 19 June 1908 to a family of miners in Kamen,[2] a town in North Rhine-Westphalia. After attending school, he trained as a miner.[2]

Gleisner was employed as a miner from 1922 to 1928.[3] He entered the Prussian police force later and became an inspector by 1932.[2] After his career in law enforcement, he was an insurance salesman from 1934 to 1937.[3] He also served as a manager for a food business and factory director before he shifted to politics.

From 1947 to 1950 Gleisner was a member of the state parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia, where he was deputy chairman of the legal and judicial committees.
