Nick began his career in the book business in 1982 working at Toronto’s World’s Biggest Bookstore. In 1987 he moved from retail to publishing in the role of Sales Representative in Eastern Ontario/Quebec for Methuen Publications based in Toronto, a role he would continue when in 1988 he moved to join Canadian Manda. Upon the retirement of the Company’s Founders, David Drew and James Chalmers, Nick became a partner in the business.
Carey began in the book industry as a bookseller working for Ben McNally in 1994. From there he worked as a sales representative in Ontario for John McLeod, then travelled the country as a sales representative for Routledge before moving to Canadian Manda to work for David Drew and James Chalmers in 1997. Carey graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Philosophy, and loves to spend time with his family being active in the great outdoors.
After completing degrees in Commerce and English Literature in 1994, Peter began his career as a bookseller, first at Mosaic Books in Kelowna, BC, and then at The Book Cellar, and Pages Books & Magazines in Toronto. In 1998 he joined Canadian Manda Group, and spent the next decade and a half selling to accounts in various territories across Canada. Peter became a partner at the firm in 2017.
At CANADIAN MANDA GROUP everyone contributes to the team in their own unique way whether it's by being the on-trend special markets expert, the resident young adult aficionado or the type A data wizard - we enjoy working together to bring our clients the best possible service and care.
