It gives me great pleasure and pride to announce that effective March 1st, 2020 David Singer will be promoted to the position of President of Thomas, Large and Singer Inc. In our firm’s 108 year history David will be the fifth person to hold this position and the fourth member of our family to take on the role. I will take on the position of Chairman of the company.
David will continue to have Emblem Logistics, Private Label, Industrial Ingredients and Sales Management reporting to him. With his promotion, he will also take on the leadership of Technology and Information Systems, Finance, Business Management, Transportation, Replenishment, Customer Service and Human Resources.
David’s experience and education will be great assets to him as he takes on this new role. He started with TLS seven years ago and prior to that, he gained valuable Consumer Product Goods experience with Pepsi Bottling Group, Acosta, Kimberly-Clark, and Procter & Gamble. David holds a BA from the University of Western Ontario and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University.
To assist David in his new role I am also pleased to report that Anthony Carter has been promoted to the position of Chief Client Officer. In this role, Anthony will continue to have responsibility for Transportation, Replenishment and Customer Service. With his promotion, he will also take on the leadership of Business Management.
Anthony’s experience and education will assist him in his new role. Anthony has a Bachelor of Commerce from Queen’s University and is a Chartered Accountant, Certified Public Account (CPA-Illinois) and Chartered Financial Analyst. Prior to working at TLS, Anthony was the Chief Financial Officer of Browne Group of Companies.
Peter Wagner will continue to be our Chief Financial Officer reporting to David. Loretta Yeung, Director of Finance, will report to Peter. Peter’s contribution to the company’s success over the years has been outstanding and he will continue to play a key role in the Senior Executive group of the company along with David, Anthony and myself.
This evolution to a new generation of leaders at TLS is exciting and what the company needs to continue its long and successful history. I have great confidence in our future under David’s leadership and I look forward to continued involvement in my new role as Chairman.
Please join me in congratulating David and Anthony on their new positions.
