Company names Luc Mongeau to succeed long-time company executive
JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — RTA specialist eSolutions Furniture, whose main divisions include Bush and Bestar, has announced the retirement of longtime President and CEO Mike Evans. He will retire Sept. 30 after more than 24 years of service.
He is being succeeded by Luc Mongeau, who will become president and CEO effective immediately upon Evans’ retirement.
The company said that Evans’ retirement is in line with planned changes after the merger of Bush and Bestar, more than two years ago, which created eSolutions Furniture.
“This is a very exciting time for me,” Evans said. “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.”
Mongeau joined the company this year from Weston Foods, where he served as president. Before that he was president of Mars Petcare North America, where he spent about 14 years of his career.
“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,” Mongeau said.
‘‘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.’’
