Head of K12 Group Education Travel and Experiences
Rich Beekman oversees the K12 Group Educational Travel and Experiences division, supporting educational tours for American groups all over the US and the world. He is fueled by a personal belief that it is critically important that students gain experiences and understanding outside their comfort zone, and began living that credo as one of the first employees at Explorica, a division of WorldStrides, over 20 years ago.
Still actively managing accounts for teachers, Rich understands what educators need in a travel partner. He ensures that this understanding is shared amongst his team, empowering them to act upon feedback for continual improvement. A New Jersey native, Rich made the move to the Boston area to attend Boston College, where he earned a BA, and lives there today with his wife and two children.
