VANCOUVER – Full-line furniture resource and retailer Moe’s Home Collection has named David Andru as its new chief financial officer.
Andru is the founder of consulting firm Andru Advisory Group, and also was previously director, finance at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Before that he was director, finance and corporate operations at apparel retailer Kit and Ace.
He also has held similar financial positions at Indochino Apparel, Ugi Fitness and Lululemon Athletica and was business development manager at Westbeach Sports and a partner in Everest Advisory Group.
In his new position, the company said Andru will lead finance, planning and analysis with responsibilities and oversight for all financial reporting. He also will be in charge of asset/liability management, budget and forecasting and all financial planning needs and treasury management. He also will function as the primary interface for all banking, tax and audit stakeholders.
Moe Samieian Jr., co-CEO, said the company is pleased to have Andru join the Moe’s team.
“He brings a stellar reputation of delivering concrete outcomes with impactful value,” Samieian said. “Dave is a tremendous executive whose skillset blends strategic discipline, operational know-how and broader insights. He has shown the innate ability to maintain quality, encourage self-development within his team and articulate what is possible to create something meaningful that a small, committed team would otherwise think was not achievable. We are confident that as our new CFO, Dave’s well-honed experience will bear transformative results and look forward to executing our shared vision of sustainable, long-term growth.”
Citing his experience at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, the company said that Andru “broadened his knowledge of and dedication to ethical and sustainable business practices. He helped navigate ethically and respectfully through the temporary closures of the stores, the office and the factories during the height of the Covid crisis. During his tenure, he initiated scheduled development training for the team each month, providing support and mentoring. His commitment to internal development paid dividends as the team became known as a high-performing partner to the business.”
