Matthew Kesthely ('11)
Commerce alumnus Matthew Kesthely (’11) had planned on a career in marketing and communications after graduation.

But, after a few months of interviewing, he landed a sales position with a transportation company, Cardinal Couriers Limited.

Kesthely began with administrative duties and quickly moved into accounting, then sales, and now, three and a half years later, he is a National Sales Representative in National and Major Accounts. He is currently managing a portfolio of $16-million in revenue and sells transportation services and unique delivery solutions to some of Canada’s largest companies.
“Some of the best advice and learning experiences I have ever received came from my professors, fellow classmates, and friends at Mount Allison,” says Kesthely. “I attribute my professionalism and maturity to those professors who guided me through my four years at Mount A. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.”

He recently returned to Mount Allison to speak to students about his experiences and to discuss the steps they should take in order to succeed and advance while in the early stages of their careers.

“I am extremely thankful for the support that was provided to me while at the University and wanted to be able to give back,” he says.
