Franco Gallese – Ontario / Atlantic Regional Manager

We are pleased to announce the hiring of Franco Gallese for the position of Ontario/Atlantic Regional Manager.


As many of you are aware, Gary Horvath after a very successful and appreciated tenure has announced his retirement. Upon completion of an extensive search that included multiple candidates, we have selected Franco Gallese as the strongest and most qualified candidate to carry on Gary’s successes.


For the last seven years Franco has held industry-wide positions in both Quebec and Ontario and has developed a reputation for building strong relationships within the engineering, contracting and wholesale communities.


Franco comes to MAS highly recommended and his broad based experience and market knowledge will allow Franco the skills and the foundation he will require to excel within his new challenges of leading the Ajax operation. Franco will be responsible for all branch operations & administration, HR, as well as the sales & marketing functions of the Ontario and Atlantic regions.


Gary Horvath will assist the management team and Franco during this transition, with a scheduled retirement date July 31, 2019.
Franco’s mandate is to maintain and cultivate an environment and service structure to ensure all internal and external customers are successfully handled by means of a “CUSTOMER FIRST” attitude.


Franco’s start date will be November 27th and his MAS email address will be franco@mastewart.com. 


Please join me in welcoming Franco to M.A. Stewart & Sons and we look forward to your support towards Franco’s optimistic, prosperous and productive future.
