The National Commodity Wood Manager is responsible for working closely with Commodity Council Members to coordinate mill direct purchasing.
Our client is an ambitious and forward thinking national buying group that has been aggressively growing its membership base in recent years and see programs like this as key in its offering to existing and potential members.
Due to a retirement, they currently seek an experienced, networked and knowledgeable lumber professional to lead the Commodity Wood program for the organization.
