Board Votes Marcil Out at FSC Canada

March 07, 2011

FSC Canada released a statement that its board made a unanimous decision to end the employment of President and CEO, Antony Marcil, while also noting the need for a new North American approach to the market.

Under Marcil’s leadership since 2005, FSC Canada can now claim to have established the largest area of FSC-certified forests in the world. Much of this growth was supported and funded by the certification of hundreds of Canadian printing companies.

"A significant share of the wood and fibre purchased by U.S. customers comes from Canadian forests, so we must view forest conservation through a North American lens,” said Corey Brinkema, President of FSC in the United States. “In this context, we see success for FSC in Canada very much in the interest of our stakeholders in the U.S. and we offer the fullest possible support during this transition period.” 

While FSC notes that Brinkema is now providing support for FSC Canada, the entity is being run on an interim basis by the Co-Chairs of the Canadian board, Arnold Bercov and Henry Sauvagnat.
