After 13 years of leading the Forest and Wood Products Australia Ltd (FWPA), Ric Sinclair, managing director, has given three months’ notice of his resignation.
“I am proud of what the team have achieved during my time at FWPA,” said Sinclair. “and I look forward to seeing them continue to grow relationships with our stakeholders, communication channels with our markets and new opportunities for sustainable forest and wood products.”
When asked to nominate his key achievements, Sinclair listed: building a great team focused on collaborating to deliver results; establishing a partnership with Planet Ark to tell wood’s carbon and renewability story through consumer advertising; creating WoodSolutions, a world-leading activity promoting the use of wood and wood products to material specifiers in the construction sector; and forging strong stakeholder relationships.
The FWPA Board will be conducting a search for his replacement.
