Story
Introduction
President and Founder of Elite Email, a world leader in email marketing solutions.

As one of Canada’s chief email marketing and digital marketing specialists, I have appeared on national television, radio programs, podcasts, and countless print publications across North America. I am one of two authorized speakers for the Email Experience Council in Canada. I was also featured in the popular CBC documentary "The Selling Game" that focused on the emerging social media industry.

I started Elite Email while still in high school, and now operate offices in Toronto, Canada; New York, USA; and Noida, India. Under my leadership, the company has received many awards and accolades, including:
  • Business Excellence Award Winner - “Under 30”, Toronto Board of Trade, 2011

  • Top 300 Canadian IT Companies, Branham Group (Backbone Magazine), 2007
  • Top 25 Up & Coming IT Companies, Branham Group (Backbone Magazine), 2007
I have consulted and worked with both small and large organizations around the globe including popular brands such as Starbucks, Ingersoll Rand, Botox and Sauza Tequila.

I am also a founder and board member of Step by Step Africa, a nonprofit organization that provides AIDS/HIV support to several villages in Africa. In 2007 I was recognized by the Canadian House of Commons as an Outstanding Volunteer for his philanthropic service through the organization.

Areas of expertise include email marketing (including mailing list acquisition strategies, campaign execution & employment, and full life-cycle analytics), social marketing, human resource management, SaaS project management, concept design, brand management, website creation and startup organizations.

Thrives in high energy environments with an emphasis on upward and downward communication channels throughout the organization.

Fueled by challenges, driven by the need to have tomorrow’s great idea.

A truly cool fitness experience for kids! A great activity that is both fun and really good for their development. The facilities are top-notch and the staff are excellent.

Dr. Charles is everything anyone could want in a chiropractor. He is skilled, thorough, patient and friendly. He explains things clearly and ensures you understand not just how to _do_ the exercises, but how to really do them 100% properly. As someone who is no stranger to hurting their back, I can tell you with absolute certainty that being a patient of Dr. Charles gets me back to being pain-free way faster.

I have been a loyal customer of Vaughan Chrysler for many years now. And, I have to say, that their service is only getting better and better. The staff throughout the dealership are very friendly, and they are incredibly knowledgeable. Their shuttle driver, Archie, always takes great care of me, too!
