VANCOUVER — Moe’s Home Collection has named David Andru chief financial officer.
In addition to his finance, planning and analysis duties, Andru will be involved in strategic and operational matters and decisions “to ensure that there is a balance between growth/ entrepreneurialism, prudent risk management and that appropriate consideration is given to operational and financial implications,” Moe’s said in a release. “In Andru, Moe’s Home Collection has found a CFO who shares its values and vision.”
Andru’s financial career spans 28 years, starting as an individual contributor and moving to manager, leader and executive roles with growth companies including Westbeach, Lululemon, Kit & Ace and most recently, Lush Handmade Cosmetics Ltd.
As director of finance at Lush, Andru broadened his knowledge of ethical and sustainable business practices and navigated the temporary closures of the stores, office and factories during the height of the COVID crisis, Moe’s said. He also initiated scheduled development training for the team each month.
“We are thrilled to have Dave join the Moe’s team,” said Moe Samieian Jr., co-CEO. “He brings a stellar reputation of delivering concrete outcomes with impactful value. Dave is a tremendous executive whose skillset blends strategic discipline, operational know-how and broader insights. He has shown the innate ability to maintain quality, encourage self-development within his team and articulate what is possible to create something meaningful that a small, committed team would otherwise think was not achievable.”
