Daniel Drapeau

Aministrator - President and General Manager Miralis


As a young man, Daniel Drapeau had nothing to do with the kitchen cabinet industry. He was a track & field athlete; he completed a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics and then worked in the telecom industry (Telus Canada) for more than 10 years. While facing complex business challenges, he gained extensive and valuable experience as a manager. However, deep down he knew he was meant to be an entrepreneur.

In 2007, a cabinet maker was coming up for sale in his hometown and hiring a general manager in the meantime. He learned the ropes by day, and took cabinetmaking classes at night and on weekends, to make sure he knew the industry through and through. In 2009, he became the owner of the company.

With that same sense of determination, he took the challenge head-on and brought his company to an international level. Innovation flows in his blood, and it was only natural to find out he had a passion for product development that spanned the fields of both kitchen cabinetry and advanced technologies. His vision and inclusive leadership approach have motivated his team to turn Miralis into the renowned North American trendsetter it is today.
