Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada -- The eSolutions Furniture company has named Luc Mongeau as president and CEO effective immediately.
Mongeau will succeed Mike Evans, president, and CEO, who will be retiring on September 30, after 24 years of service to the company.
The retirement of Mike Evans is consistent with the planned changes following the merger of Bestar and Bush Industries to create eSolutions Furniture more than two years ago.
“This is a very exciting time for me. I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life, spending more time with family and pursuing other interests. I welcome Luc to the team and am confident that the company will be in good hands with a leader of his caliber,” said Evans.
eSolutions Furniture ranks No. 51 on the FDMC 300 listing with an estimated $200 million in sales and has 600 employees. Bestar, which purchased Bush Industries in early 2020, rechristened as eSolutions Furniture in 2021 with the goal of propelling "the sale of residential and commercial furniture on the international market through cutting-edge e-commerce solutions.”
The arrival of Mongeau at eSolutions Furniture is an important step in achieving the company’s vision of becoming the leading e-commerce solution for residential and commercial furniture in North America, the company says. He will be instrumental in ensuring that the company remains innovative, competitive, and growing.
“I look forward to working with our teams to strengthen eSolutions Furniture’s position in existing markets, seek out new business opportunities, and most importantly, create a work environment where our talented employees can use their full potential in a meaningful way," says Mongeau.
Prior to joining eSolutions Furniture, Mongeau was President of Mars Petcare North America, where he spent 14 years of his career, and most recently, President of Weston Foods.
‘‘I am happy to support Mike in his decision to retire, and I want to thank him for his service over the years, leading the company through an unprecedented pandemic,” said Frédérick Perrault, chairman of the board of eSolutions Furniture. ‘‘Luc’s arrival will be a catalyst for expansion, and his expertise in marketing, sales and supply chain will be essential to our next stage of growth.’’
