QUEBEC — Residential furniture manufacturer Dutailier Group Inc. announced it has promoted David Fontaine to the position of executive vice president. The Quebec-based Dutailier specializes in glider chairs, and also manufactures juvenile furniture as well as upholstered furniture.
Fontaine, son of Dutailer owner and President Fernand Fontaine, has 15 years of experience at the company. He was the marketing coordinator at Dutailier Ltd. in England, before returning to Quebec in 2000, where he held positions as brand manager, marketing manager and vice president of marketing for Dutailier Group.
"David has agreed to take up this important challenge at a time when the situation is extremely difficult for furniture manufacturers to distance oneself from others especially with the Asian competition, dollar fluctuation and worldwide economic crisis. There is no doubt in my mind that he is the right person to fulfill this mandate", said Fernand Fontaine.
