Resolute Forest Products has appointed Duncan Davies as an additional member of its board of directors and the company’s non-executive chairman. Davies succeeds Bradley Martin, who will serve as the vice-chairman of Resolute’s current eight-member board.

“Duncan has outstanding credentials and a proven track record of success in the North American forest products industry,” said Remi G. Lalonde, president and chief executive officer. “We have identified wood products as a key pillar of our transformation strategy, and bringing Duncan’s deep knowledge of the industry on board is an excellent step in that direction to complement our existing board and strategy. I want to also express our gratitude to Brad for his leadership and guidance as chairman for the last nine years. I’m delighted that Brad will continue to contribute to our success in his new role as vice-chairman.”

Most recently, Davies served as the CEO of Pinnacle Renewable Energy. He was the president and CEO of Interfor Corporation for around 20 years until he stepped down in 2019. He is currently vice-chair of the Binational Softwood Lumber Council and has served on the Softwood Lumber Board, BC Lumber Trade Council and Canadian Lumber Trade Alliance, where he was involved in the industry-wide promotion and trade-related matters involving softwood lumber.
