With zero Pulitzer Prize nominations and a little over 4 awards away from an EGOT, Chris Canton continues to stay active & engaged. When not hiking or biking or skiing, you can occasionally find him moonlighting as the Finance business partner to the Chief Customer Officer at Mimecast, a cyber security & resiliency software provider.
A slightly above average reader, but an obnoxiously proficient book collector (aka hoarder), Chris has a long running passion for the written word. In honor of the space & resources libraries have provided him and countless others, he has been involved with the BPL Emerging Leaders since its inception.
Holding a BA in Economics & Political Science from UMASS Amherst, as well as his MBA and MSF from Boston College, Chris is rarely short on wall decorations. He is excited to support the Emerging Leaders’ ongoing growth and evolution, and to continue serving the important & noble mission of the BPL.
