In its ongoing transformation into a vertically integrated trans-Tasman sustainable timber products organisation, OneFortyOne has announced a new leadership role in its Green Triangle operations – reflective of its commitment to create a more balanced and diverse workplace.

OneFortyOne’s Chief People Officer, Peter Brydon said “At OneFortyOne, we believe an inclusive culture that is rich in diverse thinking, ideas and experience ultimately brings better results. We have established the role of Industry Career Champion Green Triangle to create greater focus and traction in this important area within our company.”

Linda Cotterill, a member of the company’s senior operational leadership team for the past two years, and with over 20 years’ experience in the industry, has been appointed into the role. Linda has deep understanding of the sector and is well respected in both the timber industry and the Green Triangle community.

In the new role, Linda will be responsible for developing strategies that create a more diverse workforce with a focus on youth and women. She will also work to capture and transfer the extensive experience and knowledge of the company’s more seasoned people, maximising their impact and ongoing involvement in the sector. And finally, she will work within the company on ideas to improve the overall health and wellbeing of all employees.

“I am delighted that Linda has accepted the role. We believe Linda’s personal strengths and qualities will have a positive impact on our business.

She has long-standing relationships across the region and a keen interest to transform the industry for the next generation. We wish her every success moving forward.” said Mr Brydon.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
