Why that image? 

We have a private chef on staff and serve incredible home made meals every day. The chance to walk away from your desk and break bread with others allows people to generate creative new ideas and collaborate more easily throughout the day.

Plus it smells great here around 11:30!

MARK RICKMEIER, CEO 

What is your role and what do you do in the organization?

I am the new CEO of Table XI (new in that role for a few months. I was the COO for the past 5 years). With this change, I will focus heavily on sales and business development, while still playing a significant role on the management of the business. 

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

I would like to see us change our business model - from an hourly based billing concept to something that easier for customers to predict

What was your favorite course in school that has nothing to do with your profession?

I took a music history course in high school that changed my life. As a direct result of that course (when I was 14 years old) I am now on the Associates Board at Ravinia and am working to bring music education to underfunded schools across Chicago. Music has had a big impact on my life - and now I am having an impact (through music) on others.

I've been with Table XI for 2 years. By title I'm the Director of Operations, but I'm essentially in charge of how we "do the work": development, design, mobile, devops, and project/product management.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

I'm most looking forward to going on my honeymoon to Southeast Asia! ...and probably some work things too, but...let's be honest...honeymoon!
