Tuesday Morning’s interim CEO appointed permanent chief

DALLAS — Closeout retailer Tuesday Morning has named Michael Rouleau as the company’s CEO. Rouleau, who was appointed interim chief executive in March 2013, will also continue to serve on the company's board of directors, which he joined November 2012.

“I am delighted to lead Tuesday Morning — a company that I believe, having worked here for a short time now, has tremendous potential as a value retailer," Rouleau said. "We are off to a good start, developing a company strategy, selling off merchandise that no longer fits our strategy, cleaning up our stores and fine tuning our merchandise direction.”

Rouleau's resume includes most recently serving as president and CEO of Michaels Stores (1996 to 2006), and also as its president from 1997 to 1999 and again from 2001 to 2006. He previously served as executive VP of store operations for Lowe's Companies, Inc. from 1992 until 1996. Prior to joining Lowe's, Rouleau was a co-founder and president and CEO of Office Warehouse, which subsequently merged into Office Max.
