SLAM! Wrestling Canadian Hall of Fame: Carl De Marco
Carl De Marco is the president of the Canadian arm of the World Wrestling Federation. He's been at that post since June 1995.
Before being appointed, he was the business manager for Bret 'The Hitman' Hart
for five years. The two first met when Bret was first trying to break into the NWA in Toronto. According to De Marco, they've been "best of friends ever since." De Marco is the "historian" to Bret's career in many ways, and has been to every match Bret has ever wrestled in Toronto.
De Marco grew up in North York and went to Dante Allighieri separate school at Dufferin and Lawrence. He transfered to Stephen Leacock Collegiate because of their terrific TV broadcasting program. At Stephen Leacock, he was in a co-op program, and was placed at CFMT-TV in Toronto. De Marco stayed there after finishing the co-op term.
Next up for De Marco was Business Administration at Sheridan College. While enrolled there, he owned and operated a security company. Later, De Marco ran a night club and a direct marketing production company.
Outside of wrestling, De Marco sits on the boards for the Easter Seals, Special Olympics and the Parc Foundation. He's engaged to get married in the summer of 1998.
