Mosaic Forest Management president and chief executive officer, Jeff Zweig, will be leaving the role at the end of August this year.
The company announced Zweig’s planned departure yesterday, noting the board of directors has commenced a search for his replacement.
“It has been the privilege of a lifetime to work with such a talented team building a world-class timberlands company,” Zweig said in the company news release. “The exceptional leadership and staff at Mosaic are well-positioned to continue to responsibly grow the company as a leader in sustainable timberlands management.”
“On behalf of the board of Mosaic Forest Management, I want to thank Jeff for his significant contributions over the past seven plus years,” said Jake Kerr, chair of the board. “Jeff led the affiliation of TimberWest and Island Timberlands to create Mosaic, Canada’s largest privately-owned timberlands producer. He helped drive significant improvements in safety, sustainability, and financial performance. Under Jeff’s leadership, Mosaic was the first forest company in B.C. to have its Progressive Aboriginal Relations program certified, the first forest company globally to certify its organizational carbon footprint, and recently launched the largest nature-based carbon credit project in Canada. During his tenure, Mosaic made significant progress on diversity, equity and inclusion and was recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers for 2022. We are genuinely sorry to see Jeff leave and thank him sincerely for all he has accomplished.”
