In a Press Release from Arlene Shepard, VP Press Management, Gateway, comes the announcement that…

“Jean-Pierre Desrochers (JP) has joined us in the capacity of Regional Manager, Eastern Canada.  JP brings many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge of this marketplace to Gateway.

His role will include the management of all existing Gateway Newstands locations in Quebec as well as taking on the transition process of the LS Travel stores acquired in this market.  This will include Montreal, Quebec City as well as Ottawa.  JP will also be responsible for new business development in this market.

JP comes to Gateway, most recently from Benjamin News.  His knowledge of press in the retail environment has come from his many years of experience at The UCS Group, (now LS Travel Retail) where he oversaw 26 retail stores in Quebec and Ontario, including large newsstands and airport locations for 14 years.

JP will begin at Gateway Newstands on Monday April 14th.

We look forward to JP’s enthusiasm and commitment to growing the presence and profile in this growing market for Gateway Newstands.
