Chris Jackson named manager of iBookstore Canada

Apple Canada has confirmed that Chris Jackson has been hired as manager of iBookstore Canada. Previously, Jackson was director of digital media and merchandising for the Toronto-based Epitome Pictures (which produced the original Degrassi High television series) and a director of business development for both Madison Press Books in Toronto and St. Remy Media in Montreal.

Apple spokesperson Jason Roth wouldn’t go into detail about Jackson’s position, but said, “He will manage relationships between Canadian publishers and iBookstore.” According to Jackson himself, who began the new position today, he will be in charge of getting the Canadian store up and running.

“I’m thrilled,” Jackson told Q&Q. “It’s an incredible chance to be back in the Canadian publishing industry during this evolution.”

    So, I guess this is what we’ve all been waiting for. I do hope it doesn’t take a long time before we see books in the iBookstore. It will be nice to get something other than Project Gutenberg books.

    iBooks Canada can’t come soon enough for me. My goodness why can’t Apple keep people informed. Hopefully now with someone hired as manager we will see books available.
