Our People.

Stan Kanarek helped found Ancare in 1965, and passed away in December, 2016.

Mitch Kanarek, President, joined his father in 1987. Deciding that it was time to move away from just catalogs and trade shows, Mitch hit the road and became Ancare's first traveling salesman!

In 1991, Brian Gallagher, VP Sales, decided that he would rather work for a small, family owned business rather than be in the impersonal World of Wall Street.

Bill McDonald, Sr. Director of Sales, followed a long family history of sales in Lab Animal Research when he joined Ancare in 1996.

Gordon Yee, Marketing Director, brought his 16 years of industry experience to Ancare when he joined the team in 1999.

In 2002, John Zapata, South West Sales Rep, was able to bring a modicum of decorum and considerable managerial experience to the Ancare sales team.

Nancy McCormick, Regional Sales Manager, was able to add her effervescent energy to the mix when she joined the Ancare team in 2005.

Most recently, Vinnie Guarniere, West Coast Sales Rep, brought his LATg and years of managerial experience to Ancare, showing us all that being the last is no reason to not be the best!

It is thanks to this dedicated team of professionals, outstanding Customer Service Representatives, and an incredible office staff that Ancare has been able to position ourselves as the most informed and involved of companies in the industry!
