Stora Enso Executive Joins EcoPlanet Bamboo
1st November 2014
EcoPlanet Bamboo Group continues its executive recruitment of world class individuals with the hiring of Francisco Ferreira as Managing Director of EcoPlanet Bamboo’s Central American operations.
Mr. Ferreira brings 30 years of large scale forestry and nursery experience, most recently responsible for forestry research and a 20 million tree nursery of a 135,000 hectare plantation in Uruguay. Within those responsibilities Mr. Ferreira managed an organization with hundreds of employees, multi-million dollar annual operations budgets, and the construction of a new $17 million nursery. Mr. Ferreira joins EcoPlanet Bamboo from Montes del Plata, a joint venture company of Stora Enso and Arauco. Stora Enso, a company with Swedish and Finnish origins, has 28,000 employees and operations in 35 countries, and is included on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). Arauco is a leader in the production of kraft wood pulp and panels, as well as having a global network of agents that sell sustainable timber products in over 71 countries.
“Mr. Ferreira is a perfect fit for our operational needs in Central America,” says Troy Wiseman, CEO of EcoPlanet Bamboo Group. “Although Mr. Ferreira holds multiple degrees in engineering and forestry, as well as a Masters degree in soil and plant nutrition, it is his desire to be on the ground and in the field getting his hands dirty, so to speak, side by side with our team that excites me the most about his hiring. Despite over three decades of experience, his desire to teach, train and support a team from the bottom up shows great humility and represents significant value to an organization like EcoPlanet Bamboo.”
