Rick Landsman

Chief Executive Officer

What attracted you to Marick?

The confidence that we could do it better than anyone else. There was a certain predisposition to owning and operating a private company – something that has been a part of my family for generations.


20 years of financial, technology and project management. The last 10 years have been spent almost exclusively in the learning 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.

I have lived or worked in the following cities

Boston, Atlanta, Ft. Lauderdale, Baltimore, Long Island, NY


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.
