Optician Nicolas Tountas is the new CEO of the Quebec Cooperative Regard Action and its subsidiaries.
With more than 15 years of experience in the optical sector, Tountas has worked as entrepreneur and manager in both manufacturing and sales. He has held the position of deputy CEO at Regard Action since 2013.
This appointment follows the retirement of Gaston Boucher. Boucher held the position for eight years. He will nonetheless remain closely associated with the Cooperative, acting as strategic consultant for the management team and the various boards of directors at Regard Action. In his new role, he will study innovative opportunities in the optical industry, while taking part in strategic discussions within the group’s entities and acting as a mentor for their managers.
In April 2014, optician Jean-Pierre Côté stepped into the role of Chairman of the board. Regard Action had also created a development coordinator position, filled by optician Josée LeBlanc.
The Cooperative has 175 optometrist and optician locations.
