When it comes to harvesting executives for its timberland team, Brookfield Asset Management has done well by recruiting investment bank analysts.
That's where the asset manager found Reid Carter, a former top-ranked tree stock picker at National bank Financial who is now a managing partner in Brookfield's timber subsidiary.
Now Brookfield has gone the same route by luring forest products analyst Mark Bishop away from RBC Dominion Securities.
A forester by profession, the Vancouver-based Mr. Bishop spent a decade at Weyerhaeuser and MacMillan Bloedel, then moved to the brokerage industry in 2000 and joined RBC Dominion five years ago. This move was first reported on Bill's Buzz, the weekly blog from executive search firm Vlaad & Co.
Brookfield's timber holdings include forests on Vancouver island that were once owned by Weyerhaeuser and the $150-million Acadian Timber Income Fund, which has properties in New Brunswick and Maine.
