Rayonier has tapped H. Edwin Kiker as its newest SVP and CFO, effective May 1, 2014. He is replacing Hans Vanden Noort, who has occupied the role since 2007 and is retiring on April 30.
Kiker has held various senior roles with the company over the past 12 years, including controller of its Real Estate business, VP internal audit and, most recently, VP investor relations.
His resume also includes audit roles with Great Lakes Chemical and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Kiker will report to the company's new CEO once the planned separation of its performance fibers business from its forest resources and real estate businesses is completed. The newly formed company (with the Performance Fibers segment) will go by the name of Rayonier Advanced Materials Inc., trading on the NYSE under the symbol "RYAM."
