About Rich Haagenson

Born in Frankfurt, Germany and raised in the small town of Glen Burnie, Maryland, Rich moved to San Antonio at the age of 25 where he decided that he wanted to learn how to build his own fantasy sports website to rival that of ESPN and Yahoo.

Going on to receive his BFA in Web Design & Interactive Media from the Art Institute of San Antonio, Rich learned about the quality of work at Leadhub where he applied and ultimately joined the team as a Web Designer. Today you can find him cranking out stellar websites that are both mobile friendly and optimized for user experience.

What does Rich do for fun?
In his spare time, you can find Rich spending time with his family while watching things like Frasier or Parks and Rec on Netflix. If you really pay attention you’ll notice him glancing off to the side to see what’s going on with NBA Live on his iOS. Don’t worry, we consider it a fairly healthy addiction.

Favorite thing about Leadhub
The people and the collaborative work culture.

Something Leadhubbies never knew…
Rich married his wife on Halloween and held a reception afterward where everyone dressed up, celebrated, and danced the night away.
