    Mark Rickmeier

    CEO, Table XI

    Though he has lived and worked in places as far-flung as India, Germany, Australia, and the UK, now with a baby and growing family, Mark has traded in his passport for life in the Windy City. As Table XI's COO, Mark runs the delivery practice for the organization working with incredible clients around the world (like Chicago Ideas Week, the Field Museum, and PechaKucha). Since returning to Chicago, Mark has gotten involved in the local community creating the “Ravenswood Outdoor Movie Nights” for families in Chicago, serving as a strategic advisor for the nonprofit Kids in Danger, and volunteering with the Neighborhood Parents Network. When he isn't working (or parenting) he studies Music Theory and western music history.
