Nicolas Duran“Nicolas successfully doubled the size of the business in Latin America as well as implemented much needed change in Canada, allowing for a successful turnaround and significant improvement in our operating performance. Since taking over Dorel Juvenile on an interim basis late last year, he has been refocusing the segment toward a more agile and closer to market business model to better react to consumer needs and opportunities,” Dorel president and CEO Martin Schwartz said in a statement announcing his appointment.
