At Monroe Tractor, our promise to our customers is “we are here to keep you doing your job.” We strive to bring the best products and the best in customer service, which is why we are pleased to announce Karen Long as chief financial officer of Monroe Tractor. Long replaces Michael Celentano, vice president/CFO, who after 47 years of service is enjoying his new career in retirement.
Long brings over 20 years of financial experience in diverse industries that involved distribution and retail across multiple entities similar to Monroe Tractor. “With her previous roles and increasing responsibilities as account manager and controller as well as several months of training with Mike Celentano, I am confident that the learning curve was shortened and the transition seamless,” said Janet Felosky, CEO of Monroe Tractor. “Karen has already proven to be a good fit with our team bringing new ideas and a fresh perspective.”
“I’m excited to join a focused leadership team while supporting a great group of accounting, human resources and technology professionals,” said Long. “By standing on the accomplishments of Mike Celentano, our corporate team is well poised to serve our stores and customers moving forward.”
A graduate of Oklahoma City University and a CPA in New York State, Long resides in Victor, NY, with her husband and their two children. When not racing between dance competitions and hockey tournaments, she enjoys entertaining friends at Keuka Lake, hiking and trying to play golf.
“We are confident that Karen will be an excellent match for this position and a strong asset to Monroe Tractor,” said Chris Felosky, president.
