Meet The Team

Dave Manga, President

Arguably the smartest man in North America, David Manga, is easily the hardest working. He’s so eager to get to work each morning that he often neglects to eat, shave, or shower, to the dismay of everyone else in the office.

Jeremy Fleet, Ghost Designer

Our Graphic Designer, Jeremy Fleet, is a man who lets his work speak for itself.  Jeremy's minimalistic approach to design keeps his work clean and focused.  His design work can be seen throughout our catalogues, tradeshow banners, flyers, and ads.  And his intellectual brain has contributed greatly to the line of Noggin Workshop card games and other product development projects in the works! 

Scott Ballantyne , US Sales

When I started at Outset in 2015, right out of the gate I was on a plane headed to New York to work at one of the industry's largest tradeshows - Toy Fair! I was quickly immersed in product knowledge and introduced to many of our wonderful retailers.

Iain Lang, Canadian Account Manager

In an effort to re-locate to my favourite Vancouver Island, I joined a bright, committed and energetic board game company called Outset Media. That was well over a decade ago! With a great cross section of young minds and creativity I have been excited to be part of this ever-growing team.

Russ Meier, Programmer Analyst

Russ bring years of experience in programming (C#, C++, .NET, SQL and more). Prior to Outset Media, Russ worked as a developer for an ERP system for the educational market.  Russ has recently worked developing ERP software, EDI solutions, Inventory management solutions, web services, and various mobile, web and desktop applications.

Joy Marie Manga, Financial Controller

I am the Financial Controller at Outset Media. We are very lucky to have a wonderful group of hard-working people working for our company and I love coming to work. I realize that most people's dream job doesn't involve budgeting, financial planning, payroll and general number crunching, but that is what makes us accountants special!

Lauren Collicutt, Administrative Assistant

I am Lauren, the go-to for help or just a quick chat here at Outset Media. I moved to Victoria, BC in 2015 all the way from the Darkside of Nova Scotia for a complete change, and started working with these lovely people as an Administrator. I have a number of responsibilities here, which I manage to take care of with accuracy and a smile – I can pretty much help with anything!

Gareth Turner, National Sales Manager

I am married to a wonderful woman with whom I share the joy of raising two incredible boys. My favorite pastimes include; reading, surfing, kiteboarding, snowboarding, family camping trips, family game nights and being involved in the boys sports. I believe in the importance of family time and firmly believe that our products help create positive family interaction.

Rob Addison, Administrative Assistant

I graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and have spent the last 8 years in the business sector honing my customer service skills and business management. Now I belong to Outset Media because they know just how awesome I am. I’m that “Real Person” in the office that you’ll talk to when you need help.

Natasha Grimsson, Canadian Administrator

My name is Natasha but I am not Russian nor am I a cartoon character (Rocky & Bullwinkle reference).

I moved to Victoria in 2005, joined the Outset Media team in March 2008 and still love every minute of it.

I live with my husband Bob, and our cat Pixie. I am a left-handed Pisces who loves animals and travelling – who doesn’t love adventure?!
