Previously, Negad served as appliance and electronics buyer and director of supply chain. He began his career with Tepperman's in 1987 as a sales person in the Chatham, Ontario store. Within a few years he was promoted to manager of the Chatham location before being promoted again, this time to manager of Tepperman's location in Sarnia, Ontario.

In 1995, Negad advanced to the role of appliance and electronics buyer, taking on the additional responsibilities of director of supply chain in 2011. He earned his Master of Business Administration degree in 2005.

In a statement, company president Andrew Tepperman said Negad brings a number of strengths to the senior leadership team including analytics, problem solving, leadership, a strong regard for the Tepperman's mission, vision and values as well as a passion for the business.

"I'm extremely pleased that Tepperman's was able to fill this new position from within our existing team of talented leaders," he continued, adding, "We're very proud of Masoud's accomplishments. With this addition to our executive team, we're the strongest we've ever been and our retailing future becomes that much more exciting."

The 87-year old retailer also operates three Bargain Annex locations.

To reach that milestone 32 consecutive times under the ownership and management of four generations of a single family is truly remarkable. It's so rare there are barely a handful of furniture retailers across North America who can claim membership in this truly elite club.
