Forest Industry legend Frank Dottori passes the baton to Tony Wyszkowski.

Tony Wyszkowski has been appointed as President of WRC Timber.

Known as a calm and thoughtful leader, Tony has extensive experience managing $200M businesses with 600+ employees across North America. Well-versed in industrial environments, it was Tony’s dedication to improving the bottom line and affecting positive culture change that set him above other candidates.
