For Toronto executive John Fielding, the road to entrepreneurial success began in 1981, after making the decision to trade in his professional hockey career for the opportunity to pursue a path in business.
John and his brother, Bill, founded Array Marketing, an award-winning retail merchandising company. In the beginning, the two brothers focused on advertising specialties, where they distributed promotional items such as coffee mugs, key chains and bottle openers.
Today, Array Marketing is a global retail merchandising service with clients that include Ulta, Chanel, Estee Lauder, Sephora, and more. Array Marketing has provided innovative service in retail merchandising, in-store build outs, creative branding, open service systems, retail fixtures, and point-of-purchase displays for more than 35 years. John remains a shareholder of Array Marketing and serves on the company’s board of directors.
