Jewett-Cameron Trading Announces New Board Appointment

Chad originally joined the Company in October 2019. He was appointed President in May 2021 and CEO in January 2022. His prior experience includes participation in start-up ventures in both product and service industries and has a strong background in leadership, consulting, and support. He co-owned and led an international lumber brokering business similar to Jewett-Cameron’s Greenwood division. This experience provided him the opportunity to oversee and actively manage suppliers in China and throughout SE Asia. He also built a successful consulting practice dedicated to growing manufacturers in association with a west coast regional accounting firm which allowed him the opportunity to establish a deep network of manufacturers, professional services and support connections regionally.
Mr. Summers is not considered an “Independent” Director due to his position as an Officer of the Company. With his appointment, the Board now consists of seven Directors, including four Independent Directors. He will stand for election as a Director at the next General Meeting of shareholders which is expected to be held in early calendar 2023.
