SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – Roseburg Forest Products appointed Stuart Gray to the newly created position of Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately. 

Roseburg Forest Products is a privately-owned company and one of North America’s leading producers of particleboard, medium-density fiberboard and thermally fused laminates. Roseburg also manufactures softwood and hardwood plywood, lumber, LVL and I-joists.

The company’s ongoing growth in a complex and fast-paced business environment drove Roseburg’s executive team to create the new role to leverage Gray’s skillset and experience. 

“As we continue to expand Roseburg’s business, our business context and related challenges are also increasing,” said Grady Mulbery, Roseburg president and CEO. “Adding a COO to our leadership structure is a very effective way to help continue our success. Stuart’s leadership and growth with our strategic business development initiatives demonstrate that he’s the right fit for this role.” 

Roseburg’s executive team will remain intact and move forward with their current roles and responsibilities. As COO, Gray will assume oversight for operations, sales and HR/EHS. The three current senior vice presidents for those functions will fall within the scope of the COO. 

With roots in the construction and building supply industry, Gray joined Roseburg in 2017 as senior vice president and general counsel, overseeing the company’s strategic business development, compliance and environmental teams.
