MONTREAL, Quebec (BRAIN) — Robert Baird, group president and CEO of Dorel’s recreational and leisure segment, has left the company, Dorel announced Wednesday. Peter Woods, the segment’s CFO, has been named interim president until a new president is appointed.
Dorel said it has initiated a search for Baird’s successor. “We thank Bob for his service with Dorel and wish him well in the future,” Martin Schwartz, Dorel’s president and CEO, said in a statement.
