Nicolas Touchette, co-owner and CEO of Groupe Touchette, said Mougios is the "ideal candidate" to support Touchette's strategic thinking and growth plan.
"Tony Mougios is a key figure in the North American tire industry and a sought-after speaker on the global stage, both for his deep knowledge of the industry and its products, and for his strategic vision," he added.
"We are honored that such a strong leader has been willing to pursue his career within the Groupe Touchette family," Frédéric Bouthillier, co-owner and chief operating officer, said. "The quality of his leadership and his reputation are widely recognized within the Canadian tire industry as well as internationally."
Founded by André Touchette in 1979 in Montreal, Groupe Touchette nearly doubled in size this year with the acquisition of National Tire Distributors in September.
That purchase, from American Tire Distributors Inc., double the size of Touchette's wholesale distribution network to 52 warehouses across Canada.
In addition to its wholesaling business, Groupe Touchette services car manufacturers, car dealerships and independent tire retailers through its TireLink and DT Tire Banners, and serves Canadian consumers under the retail banners Tirecraft, Integra Tire, Signature Tire, Tireland/Ici Pneu, Tire Partners/Pneu Solutions, Pneus Chartrand Mécanique, Pneus Express Mécanique and Touchette Motorsport.
