Boise Cascade Company has named Nate Jorgensen as its new chief operating officer, responsible for overseeing the wood products and building materials distribution divisions.

Jorgensen has 32 years of experience in the industry, including past positions in engineering, product development and distribution operations. He joined Boise Cascade in 2015, most recently leading the engineered wood products (EWP) sales and marketing organization.

The Boise, Idaho-based company has also promoted Mike Brown to executive vice president. Brown will now lead the wood products division, as the successor to Dan Hutchinson who is retiring on April 1 with nearly 39 years of service.

Brown joined the company in 1999, serving in several leadership roles including guiding Boise’s Brazilian operations and the southeastern U.S. region. He relocated to Boise, Idaho, in 2015 to assume the position of vice president for wood products manufacturing operations.

Erin Nuxoll has been promoted to senior vice president of human resources. She rejoined the company in 2016 after serving as SVP of human resources for a global, privately-held company for 10 years. Prior to that, Nuxoll had a 23-year tenure at Boise.

Jill Twedt, vice president of legal, has been promoted to general counsel and she also currently serves as corporate secretary. Twedt joined the company as senior counsel in 2007 after several years at a mid-sized law firm.

Nuxoll and Twedt will be assuming the responsibilities held by senior vice president of human resources and general counsel John Sahlberg who is retiring on March 1 after 37 years with Boise Cascade.

“I want to personally offer a heartfelt thank you to Dan and John for their significant contributions over nearly four decades. Both of them leave a lasting legacy at Boise Cascade in many ways, including helping to develop our next generation of leaders,” said CEO Tom Corrick. “We have been intentionally planning for these transitions for several years and I am pleased we’ve been able to fill these roles with internal talent. This continuity of leadership enables us to continue to live our values and successfully execute our business strategy to best serve our customers, suppliers and shareholders into the future.”
