Books | Team

Greetings and welcome to Friesens Corporation, Book Division

If this was a professional sports team I would be akin to the General Manager. In other words hire the best coaches, (Sales Managers) give them the players they need (Account Managers) and then stay out of their way!!

Below you will meet the group that makes up one of the best, if not the best team in the industry. Some companies believe in centralizing their sale force close to the home office, at Friesens we do not. Our representatives live and work in the regions they serve. They are involved in the publishing community where they live. This to us is a critical value proposition. Every regional representative has a strong and lasting commitment to customers, books, and publishing. They are a group of experts with the experience and sound judgment needed when helping you with your print needs.

Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to helping you.
