SHERBROOKE, Quebec – Ready-to-assemble specialist eSolutions Furniture has named Luc Mongeau as president and chief executive officer effective immediately. He succeeds Mike Evans, who will be retiring at the end of September after 24 years of service to the company.

In a statement, the company said Evans’ retirement is consistent with the changes planned following the merger of Bestar and Bush Industries to create eSolutions Furniture more than two years ago.

“This is a very exciting time for me. 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,” Evans said.

eSolutions Furniture, a ready-to-assemble specialist for both the home and office, has named Luc Mongeau as president and chief executive officer effective immediately.Mongeau’s arrival is an important step in achieving the company’s vision of becoming the leading e-commerce solution for residential and commercial furniture in North America. He will be instrumental in ensuring that the company remains innovative, competitive, and growing.

“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,” he said.

Prior to joining eSolutions Furniture, Mongeau was president of Mars Petcare North America, where he spent 14 years of his career, and most recently, president of Weston Foods.

‘‘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,” eSolutions board chairman Frédérick said. “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.”
