OFIC has new President

May 16, 2012

By Oregonians For Food and Shelter,

Last week the Oregon Forest Industries Council (OFIC) announced their new President. According to a statement from Tom Holt, OFIC’s Board Chairman, “McNitt will begin work on June 15, 2012, and there will be a two week overlap with Ray Wilkeson working closely with her until the end of June…With Kristina we believe we have made an excellent choice to lead the organization into the future.”

McNitt grew up east of Salem in a timber family, and has a degree in economics from the University of Oregon. She is married to Stuart Olson, a Salem area farmer (and former OFS Board Member) who grows peaches, cherries, berries, apples, nectarines and holly.

Kristina is very knowledgeable in forestry, agricultural, water, and political issues. OFS has worked with Kristina in many capacities over the years and we look forward to our continued partnership with her and OFIC members and staff.

Ray Wilkeson is retiring after 26 years at OFIC. The Capital Press printed an article about his retirement in last Friday’s paper. If you have not read it, see it here.
