Forest Enhancement Society of BC Appoints a New Board Member

The Forest Enhancement Society of BC (FESBC) is pleased to announce its newest Board Member, Brian Banfill. Brian was welcomed at a Board of Directors meeting in June 2017 and will take on a ‘member at large’ role.

Brian graduated from the College of New Caledonia’s business administration program in 1983 and became a CPA, CGA in 1990. He has over 30 years of forest industry experience including more than 12 years with West Fraser Timber, primarily in the role of Controller for the company’s solid wood operations group, and almost 13 years as a Senior Vice President with Brookfield Timberlands Management. With Brookfield, he was a key member of a small team that acquired over US$3 billion of timberlands and related manufacturing operations in Canada, the United States and Brazil and he was responsible for all aspects of accounting and finance for the timberlands operations managed by the company. In this role, he also served as CFO, and later COO, of Acadian Timber Corp. Since his retirement from Brookfield in 2016, he has been working as a consultant.

Both FESBC Board and staff look forward to working with Brian to advance environmental and resource stewardship of BC’s forests in the coming years.
