GREG MARINO

CEO, KAPLAN NORTH AMERICA, FORT LAUDERDALE

Kaplan, with 6,000 employees, provides educational and career services for students, professionals, universities and businesses in the U.S. and 29 other countries. Marino, once a paperboy for New York Newsday, worked his way from an internship at Kaplan to the CEO’s job. He’s been with the company for 28 years. “I’ve had the privilege of working on a mission that I am passionate about — enabling adults to continue learning on their own terms and advancing their careers,” he says.
