Tafisa begins selection process for new CEO

Louis Brassard 

The Board of Directors of Tafisa Canada has initiated the selection process for a new Chief Executive Officer, to eventually succeed Louis Brassard.

The process was planned as to ensure the successful candidate will benefit from Brassard’s mentorship while gradually taking the reins of the company over a transition period that will extend into 2025, thus ensuring a smooth transition at the head of the company.

Brassard has been involved with the company since 1994 and as CEO since 2003. During his tenure, he greatly contributed to the growth and success of the company.

“Louis led not only the growth of Tafisa but also its unique positioning as the supplier of choice for innovative and high quality decorative products across a number of segments. His unwavering dedication together with his clear and consistent vision have very much impressed us and we are delighted that he has accepted to continue to help the company and the team beyond the transition period. On behalf of the board and the entire team, I would like to warmly thank him for his exceptional contribution," said Paulo Azevedo, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tafisa and Efanor.
