GreenFirst Forest Products Inc. announces the retirement of its chief executive officer, Rick Doman, for personal reasons effective December 31, 2022.

GreenFirst’s Chairman, Paul Rivett, has temporarily assumed the role of executive chair and interim CEO in order to ensure the focus of the company during this transition, including continuing the progress of initiatives that are underway and beginning the search for a new CEO. Doman will continue as a director of GreenFirst, and Marty Proctor has become lead independent director.

“We all thank Rick for his tireless service to GreenFirst and we wish him well with his future endeavours. The company would not exist without his early vision,” said Rivett.

“In a few short years, during a pandemic, we built a strong foundation for GreenFirst’s future growth, including strengthening our team, focusing on capital and optimizing operations,” Rivett continued.


“This has been a difficult decision as I leave behind a strong team of talented employees. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication to this great company. GreenFirst is well positioned for a successful future,” said Doman.
