NEW YORK, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The life story of Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning epitomizes the American dream. Mr. Sarder came to the United States from Bangladesh, one of the poorest countries in the world. He arrived with a few suitcases and a few books.

My goal is now that I have built a growing multimillion dollar business to pass on my love of learning to others,” said Russell Sarder, CEO of NetCom Learning.
“The Love of Learning program is all about helping children to further their education, a goal which is close to my heart. The passion for learning has dominated my life, it is at the center of my career as a CEO. Even in the poor country of Bangladesh, parents instill a desire to excel at school. The funding from NetCom Learning’s Love of Learning program in partnership with our friends at BRAC USA will help make a good education happen for children,” said Sarder.
