President

Andrew Wadford

Andrew has worked in the textbook industry for ten years.  When Andrew discovered the savings he could offer students on an individual level, he was overcome with a desire to provide these savings on a larger scale. With ten year of experience sourcing books from all over the market, Andrew created Textbook Acquisition Services as a way to provide drastically lowered pricing to Early College, Dual Enrollment, CCP, and STEM Programs. Whereas many things have changed in the textbook industry over his ten years, one thing that has remained the same is the unmatched customer service he provides to all of his clients. In his spare time, Andrew enjoys spending time with his family or playing in different city league sports. Andrew is a graduate of East Carolina University and currently resides in Raleigh, NC.

Vice-President

Kamal Chisholm

For Kamal, books have always been an innate interest and passion. He explains his experience in this industry as turning a hobby into a career. Kamal has been providing course materials to college students for over 10 years. Now, instead of just helping out individual students, he loves having the opportunity to assist entire programs. Kamal truly enjoys finding the most affordable textbooks possible in order to provide maximum savings. When Kamal is not juggling books, he's working out, playing soccer, solving crossword puzzles, or spending as much time on the beach as possible. Kamal graduated from the University of Central Florida and currently lives in Ft. Myers, Florida.
