RONA hires internally to name latest CEO

RONA inc. has tapped its existing executive ranks to find its newest president and CEO. Jean-Philippe (J.P.) Towner joined RONA barely a year ago, in October 2023, as CFO. Before joining RONA, Towner spent three years at Dollarama as CFO; prior to that he served as EVP and CFO at Pomerleau Inc., a commercial construction company based in Saint-Georges, Que.

Towner replaces Andrew Iacobucci, who joined exactly one year ago as president and CEO, following a 20-year career in the grocery industry.
