Roger Marino co-founded Revere Pictures, an independent film production and development company, in 2001 with Michael Corrente. Revere’s slate of upcoming releases includes Mike Hodges’ I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, starring Clive Owen, Malcolm McDowell, and Charlotte Rampling; John Schultz’ When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, starring Jonathan Lipnicki, Eric Stoltz, and Jane Krakowski; and Corn, the debut feature from Dave Silver (2002 Sundance Film Festival award winner for Best Short Film).
Mr. Marino is one of the producers of the hit Broadway revival of Gypsy, starring Bernadette Peters. A Forbes 500 computer pioneer, he brings to theater and film the same keen business instincts and entrepreneurial spirit that transformed his upstart EMC Corp. into a multi-billion dollar leader in the high-tech industry, specializing in information storage systems. Mr. Marino retired from EMC in 1992. Also a long-time sports enthusiast, he is a former owner of the NHL Pittsburgh Penguins.
An active philanthropist, he was the Founding Director of the Gorbachev Foundation of North America, which contributes to the strengthening and spread of democracy and economic liberalization worldwide. He serves as a trustee of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute; co-founded The Summit Montessori School in Framingham, MA with his wife Michelle; and founded the Roger M. Marino Charitable Foundation.
Mr. Marino also helped finance the design and construction of the Marino Center, a new 81,000 square-foot state-of-the-art recreation building at his alma mater, Northeastern University.
