1 CEO of OneFortyOne, Melbourne. Web: www.onefortyone.com
Australian/New Zealand venture The company of which I am CEO, OneFortyOne, was formed in 2012 by a consortium of investors to purchase the South Australian Government’s radiata pine plantation. Five years later the company simply exploded. We bought a large sawmill in Mt Gambier, one of the largest sawmills in Australia. We then bought a very large forest (and mill) in Nelson, New Zealand. For many in the industry we came from nowhere. As CEO, I was the first and only employee back in 2012, with just one forest in one region and one country. We are now over 500 employees, across two countries, in two parts of the supply chain, and have tripled in value since inception. We are now the largest trans-Tasman vertically integrated company in the industry. (no keywords)
