Blocker’s appointment follows the planned retirement of Robert Taylor in May.

“We are excited to welcome Adrian to Weyerhaeuser,” said Larry Burrows, senior vice president, Wood Products. “He will be a great addition to our team, bringing more than 30 years of broad forest products operational and corporate experience in forestland management, fiber procurement, and lumber and plywood manufacturing.”

Blocker has held positions in leadership, strategic planning, business development, manufacturing and sales management at Champion International, International Paper and West Fraser. Most recently, he served as CEO of the Wood Products Council. He holds an MBA and Bachelor of Science degrees in Business and Forestry from Mississippi State University.

“Rob has provided tremendous leadership during his 36 years with the company in Hardwood and Softwood Lumber,” said Burrows. “We will miss his guiding hand at Weyerhaeuser, and we wish him well in his retirement.”
