Roland Canada has announced that Brian Dupas, formerly the vice president of sales for Roland Canada, has been promoted to president and CEO. This move follows the promotion of now-former president and CEO Paul McCabe to the newly-created position of VP of marketing with Roland Corporation.

Over the past 30 years, Dupas has held many roles with Roland Canada, moving his way through the positions of BC sales representative, inside sales manager, and executive sales manager, and his most recent role of VP of sales, which he has held for the past five years.

Of his recent appointment, Dupas says, “I’m excited to be taking on the role of president and CEO of Roland Canada. We have a well-established company with top people on staff and a lengthy list of highly valued business partners. This is an exciting time for Roland in general as we plan to roll out a full year of new and innovative products while tuning up our marketing to drive customers into your stores. I look forward to seeing many of you as I travel Canada this year.”
