Mark Caplan '76

April 2024

Mark Caplan is “trying to exit stage left somewhat gracefully and leave intact real estate investment, development and management here in the mid-Atlantic,” which while made easier by “a really strong group of energetic and smart younger partners,” including his daughter Eliza, is “taking a bit longer than expected.” Mark wrote that another “part of what makes leaving something behind easier is having a place to go or something to do,” and he’s focusing on educational opportunity and diversity, particularly through the Enoch Pratt Free Library. “We remain one of the few trusted institutions in the city. We are actively thinking about the library of the future and are reimagining how our 22 branches should look and function. It will be a significant investment. It is good to be part of a team working on something so important.”

Mark also has guest lectured at a number of business schools, and turning closer to home, he’s working with Loyola high school on a few guest seminars this fall. “Maybe your kids or grandkids see me in the classroom,” Mark wrote. A lover of the outdoors, Mark drove last fall around the perimeter of the United States and up into the Canadian Rockies in his SUV, pulling an Airstream. Mark’s wife, Linda, and their three daughters also are doing well.
