MONTREAL - The top executive at Rona is leaving the company.

The departure of Robert Dutton comes 20 years after he became Rona's president and chief executive in 1992.

It also comes just months after the Canadian home improvement chain ended off a takeover by American rival Lowe's.

Rona's current chief financial officer, Dominique Boies, will be interim CEO while the company's board seeks a permanent successor.

The Montreal-based company (TSX:RON) has Canada's largest network of stores selling hardware, home renovation and gardening products.
