All about Gerald Munroe of Kitchener, Ontario.
KITCHENER — It had been a gutsy move to give up a secure job for an uncertain future with a wife and five kids at home. But for the highly personable and hard-working Gerald Munroe, the gamble paid off. In 1970, he introduced the toothbrush manufacturer J.O. Butler Company into Canada, eventually rising to vice-president of Canadian operations.
“It was up to him how he built the company,” said his wife Denise. “When he retired it was a multi-million-dollar company.”
Perhaps he had dental health in his genes — Gerry’s father had been a dentist in Montreal, though he died when Gerry was only 16,leaving the teen to take responsibility for his mother and two younger sisters.
