85 King St East has long been one of Kingston's premiere addresses. The Gothic stone home and courtyard from the year 1877 was the home of the late David and Lois Monieson for the past 50 years.
Mr. Monieson was a renowned marketing guru after whom the Monieson Research Centre at Queen's University was named. In addition to his considerable academic influence, Monieson sat on numerous industry boards and or consulted regularly such as the Ontario Hog Marketing Board, Warner Lambert, General Electric, and others.
Mrs. Lois Monieson was a student of sociology and influenced the thoughts of her husband on various issues. Lois was a noted and well respected quilter. Mr Monieson died in 1990. Mrs Monieson passed in late 2014. Their son Phillip survives them and has chosen local innovator and modern online marketer MaxSold to sell the bulk of contents from the estate."Everything must go" said estate agent Alicia Gordon of Gordon's Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage. "We were proud to be selected by Mr Monieson to look after the sale of his home and management of the estate".
MaxSold CEO Sushee Perumal commented "It's an honour to be connected in any way with a family that made such a historical mark in marketing."
Mr Monieson senior constantly reminded his students that academic theory must be closely connected to practical application to be relevant.
