The Leadership Team

Mark Kaufmann

Mark Kaufmann

CEO, Co-founder
Jefe, Speaks 4 Languages (including getting s#!t done)

It was while travelling the world as a pro hockey player (ice hockey for you non-Canadians) that Mark first developed an interest in learning languages. He has taken Steve’s methods and designed LingQ to bring this approach to the masses. He can usually be found working out or playing sports while listening to LingQ lessons… kind of tough under the hockey helmet! Mark has been featured in The National Post and Made in CA.
