Dutailier Group Inc., the Quebec-based manufacturer of wood glider rockers, accent leather upholstery and juvenile bedroom furniture, announced that it has promoted David Fontaine to the position of Executive Vice President.

David Fontaine  has 15 years of experience within the company.  He began his career at Dutailier Ltd. in England as Marketing coordinator.  Returning to Quebec in 2000, he held positions as Brand Manager, Marketing Manager and most recently, Vice President of Marketing for Dutailier. 

"David has agreed to take up this important challenge at a time when the situation is extremely difficult for furniture manufacturers to distance oneself from others especially with the Asian competition, dollar fluctuation and worldwide economic crisis. There is no doubt in my mind that he is the right person to fulfill this mandate", said Fernand Fontaine, President and owner of the company.

Present in more than 15 countries, on 3 continents, Dutailier benefits from an excellent reputation based on the quality and durability of its products but most of all, for it's intuition and knowledge to meet consumer's expectations and needs.
