Rick Landsman

Chief Executive Officer/Co-founder

Why did you start Marick?

The confidence that we could do it better than anyone else. My wife was hours from delivering our third daughter when we decided it was the right time to start Marick.  Her support meant a lot, and still does to this day...and now I have a daughter that is the same age as the company.


25 years of financial, technology and project management. The last 15 years have been spent almost exclusively in the learning & human capital sector.


B.A. in Psychology, University of Maryland. I use this degree at least 24 times per day.

Personal interests

I'm a car guy. I have 4 daughters, so I'm also a bill-paying guy.


English, sub-fluent Spanish

What was your first job?

I worked at my parents' printing company starting when I was 13, collating paper into books. I also helped build and integrate printed circuit boards for my father's technology company at the same time. Paper vs. technology was a good hedge.

What industries would you say you know well?

Technology. Education. Business & Finance. Automotive. Sports. Looks like most of the sections of a newspaper. Oh, and crosswords.
