Mosaic Forest Management is delighted to announce the appointment of Rob Gough as its new President and Chief Executive Officer.
“The Board is pleased to welcome Rob as Mosaic’s next President and CEO. Rob is a successful leader and people manager and has a proven track record in business development, value creation, and change management. He played an instrumental role in the creation of Mosaic, Canada’s largest privately-owned timberlands producer, through the affiliation of TimberWest and Island Timberlands,” said Jake Kerr, Chair of the Board.
Mr. Gough has nearly 30 years of international natural resources experience in the mining and forestry sectors, serving most recently as Mosaic’s Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer and, before that, within the mining sector at Coalspur and in progressively senior leadership positions at BHP.
Mosaic was the first forest company in BC to have its Progressive Aboriginal Relations program certified and the first forest company globally to certify its organizational carbon footprint. Mosaic recently launched the largest nature-based carbon credit initiative in Canada. Mr. Gough will continue to advance Mosaic’s position as a global leader in sustainable forest management.
