The Blue Link Management Team

Strong organizational leadership keeps Blue Link ahead of the curve.

Mark Canes, President and CEO, Blue Link

Mark Canes

President and CEO

A Chartered Accountant and CA-IT, Mark was a partner in a public accounting firm many years ago. During his time in public accounting, Mark honed his wholesale/distribution industry skills by specializing in owner-managed product-driven businesses. From there it was a logical progression to become the architect of a wholesale distribution software solution.

There are few things that Mark enjoys more than helping business owners reap the benefits of improved business processes, but when not running Blue Link, you can find Mark cheering on his favorite soccer team Everton or out on the field himself.
