marketing, Social Media Influencer, and Photographer in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Spiro Mandylor is an accomplished marketing, business development and social media influencer. Learning to code in BASIC and FORTRAN in grade school, he launched his first Bulletin Board System (BBS) using a Commodore 64 and house line in the mid 1980s. Extensive secondary school computer science studies followed.
After graduating from the University of Toronto with a double major in Kinesiology (BPHE) and Psychology (BSc) in 1997, he later obtained his Project Management Professional (PMP) designation and Certificate in Marketing Communications.
He began working for a Toronto & Los Angeles based dotcom, where he oversaw the design and implementation of their online store, web sports portal and fitness software. After a visit to San Francisco in 1999, it was evident that the dotcom boom was about to go bust. He quickly moved into IT project and account management consulting for the government and healthcare sectors. Clients have included the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, eHealth Ontario, Cancer Care Ontario, Ontario College of Pharmacists, and Baxter Pharmaceuticals.
A brief hiatus from technology in 2002 led to an entrepreneurial venture in South America. Mandylor designed and project managed the construction of a discotheque and event space in Chile. After selling his stake in the venue two years later, he worked as an international marketing manager for two medical device companies over a five-year period spending two years in London, UK.
In late 2010, Mandylor founded It’s All Style To Me, an online style blog/online magazine. This was an opportunity to leverage his marketing, business development, project management, IT and photography experience. He’s gone on to cover countless fashion shows and events in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
Revered for his photography and social media marketing skills, Mandylor was appointed official Olympus Photography Visionary status in 2012. Many other brand ambassadorships followed.
