Weyerhaeuser Adds Willamette Execs
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) _ Weyerhaeuser Co. said it will add two executives from Willamette Industries to its senior management team as part of several changes announced Wednesday.
The changes, to take effect Feb. 18, are part of Weyerhaeuser’s plan for integrating its former rival Willamette Industries. The company acquired the business after shareholders approved the bid earlier this week.
Michael Onustock, formerly Willamette’s executive vice president of pulp and fine paper marketing, will become Weyerhaeuser’s senior vice president of pulp and white paper. Marvin Cooper, formerly Willamette’s executive vice president in charge of pulp and paper mills, will join Weyerhaeuser as senior vice president of pulp, paper, containerboard manufacturing and engineering.
In addition, longtime Weyerhaeuser executive James Keller has been promoted from vice president and general manager to senior vice president of containerboard packaging and recycling.
Keller and Onustock will replace Richard Gozon, Weyerhaeuser’s current executive vice president of pulp, paper and packaging, who is retiring effective March 31, spokesman Bruce Amundson said.
Cooper’s position has been created as a result of the acquisition, Amundson said.
