Own the Ink in Your Industry, with Andy Buyting

Andy Buyting is the President & CEO of Carle Publishing. Andy understands business and what it takes to run a successful company. As an independent retailer for 15 years, he learned the trials and tribulations of competing against national brands constantly stealing market share. 

He took that knowledge and launched Carle Publishing in 2014 with the purpose of enabling Client-Partners to “Own the Ink in Their Industry” differentiating them in their marketplace. This passion is what drives Andy and his company each and every day. 

Andy is a graduate of the Birthing Of Giants program presented by MIT University, Inc Magazine & Entrepreneurs Organization (EO), and is currently enrolled in the annual Gather Of Titans program at MIT. He has been a member of the Toronto chapter of Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO) for 15 years.
