John Manning is a Principal at Proximis Digital Inc.


John is the Principal and owner of Proximis. In business since 2014, he is proud to have grown the company from “two goofs in a coffee shop” to a mid-size advertising agency with a powerful and unique style of storytelling.

John’s obsession with choosing winning strategies and talent for anticipating risk make him an asset to our clients. Day-to-day responsibilities include ensuring client objectives are met, creative direction, facilities & equipment, and business development.

Outside of client work, John enjoys producing a mediocre podcast and will jump into a fight when the issue is close to his heart.

While most frequently found in the office plugging in cords and re-arranging furniture, when on-loan to the natural environment John likes to row, play in the snow, and talk quietly.

John has an Economics & Environmental Science degree from Queen’s University.
