Press Release: Canadian Print Action – Jay on The Facilitator
Jay Mandarino discusses his plans for growth and the continuing spike of mergers and acquisitions in Canadian printing.
It is hard to argue against stating Jay Mandarino, President and Founder of the C.J. Group of Companies, is the most-visible personality in Canada’s printing industry. By being so engaged in the community, particularly in the hypercompetitive environment of Toronto, he is as much a sounding board for insight as a lightning rod for criticism.
Mandarino, however, is the consummate entrepreneur on which the Canadian printing industry was built. He embodies the strategy and ambition needed to move through some of printing’s darkest days, when the business maturation of mobile, Internet-driven communications is wiping out swaths of excess press capacity, crippling companies that have existed for decades. When there is no longer an automatic generational succession of printing companies.
