Weyerhaeuser appointed Jeanne M. Hillman as Vice President and chief accounting officer for the company, effective from August 5, 2013. Hillman succeeds Jerald W. Richards, who recently resigned from his position to become chief financial officer at Potlatch Corporation.
“Jeanne is an experienced leader with tremendous financial expertise,” said Patty Bedient, executive Vice President and chief financial officer. “The knowledge she gained supporting our businesses for the past three years will serve her well as she expands her role to include the responsibilities of this critical position for the company.
“Jerry has been an outstanding member of the Weyerhaeuser team, and while we are sorry to see him go, we wish him the very best in his new role,” Bedient added.
