The Chair of the Board of Forest Products Association of Canada, Curt Stevens, announced on November 17 that Paul Lansbergen will be taking over as acting President and CEO of FPAC from December 14, 2015.
Lansbergen will replace the departing CEO, David Lindsay, who held the leadership position for the last three years.
“We wish David well as he takes on a new job closer to his family. During his time at FPAC, he strived to position the Canadian forest products industry as innovative, environmentally friendly and global in its reach,” says Stevens, the CEO of Louisiana Pacific (LP). “We are confident that FPAC affairs will be in good hands with Paul while we continue the search for a permanent replacement and transition to the next phase of our association.” He added further.
Lansbergen, a Certified Association Executive, has had progressively more senior positions at FPAC for the past 13 years. He is currently the Vice-President of Regulations and Partnerships, and Corporate Secretary.
