Weyerhaeuser Co., Federal Way, Wash., USA, appointed Jim Kilberg SVP, Real Estate, Energy and Natural Resources, effective this past Monday, April 11, 2016. Kilberg will become part of the company's senior management team and report to Doyle Simons, president and CEO. He succeeds Tom Lindquist, who has decided to leave the company mid-year to pursue new business ventures.

"Jim is a proven, dynamic leader with extensive real estate expertise and tremendous credibility within the company and industry," Simons said. "I have full confidence that under Jim's leadership, our Real Estate, Energy, and Natural Resources team will achieve our goal of delivering the most value from each of our 13 million acres of timberland."

Kilberg is an experienced forest industry and real estate executive who served as SVP of the Real Estate, Energy, and Natural Resources business of Plum Creek since 2003. He joined Weyerhaeuser with the merger in February 2016. Prior to Plum Creek, he held senior positions at Trammell Crow Co., Pep Boys, and PepsiCo. 

Lindquist also joined Weyerhaeuser with the merger after serving as president and COO at Plum Creek since 2007. Prior to that role, he was EVP at Plum Creek since 2001.

"I want to thank Tom for working closely with me and other leaders to assemble an outstanding team with a strong mix of talent from both companies," Simons said. "Tom has a great track record of forming highly capable teams who know how to create value, and we will continue to build on that momentum. I am pleased that Tom has agreed to stay on until mid-year to complete a number of merger-related projects, and I wish him the best in his future endeavors."

"Weyerhaeuser has a very talented leadership team and a truly remarkable asset base," Lindquist said. "I'm honored to have been part of creating the world's premier timber, land, and forest products company, and I look forward to Weyerhaeuser's continued success."

Weyerhaeuser, one of the world's largest private owners of timberlands, began operations in 1900. It owns or controls more than 13 million acres of timberlands, primarily in the U.S., and manages additional timberlands under long-term licenses in Canada. The company also is one of the largest producers of wood and cellulose fiber products. It merged with Plum Creek Timber Co., in February 2015.
