Roseburg announced that Tony Ramm has been named senior vice president of manufacturing, effective April 8. In the role, Ramm will drive an increased emphasis on the sustainable, long-term success of the manufacturing side of Roseburg’s wood products business.

“Tony’s deep manufacturing experience and operational acumen will be vital as Roseburg shifts focus from the construction and startup phase at our newer plants and capital investment projects to the long-term successful operation of our manufacturing assets,” Roseburg president and CEO Stuart Gray said in a news release. “His past year with human resources adds another important dynamic and will be extremely beneficial as we embrace the future of manufacturing and the rapid pace of evolution in our industry.”

Ramm first joined Roseburg in May 2014 as the plant manager at the company’s Riddle Plywood operation and moved through roles of increasing responsibility on the operations side of the business. In June 2023, he was named vice president of human resources and was promoted to the role of senior vice president of human resources in December 2023.

The company also announced two other leadership changes: the departure of senior vice president of operations Jake Elston and the reinstatement of its chief operations officer position.

“Roseburg is sincerely grateful to Jake for his contributions to our manufacturing business,” Gray said. “We wish him the best in the next phase of his life and career.”

The chief operations officer position was vacated last year when Gray was named president and CEO of Roseburg. Effective April 8, the manufacturing, sales and marketing, human resources, and engineering teams will report to the COO.

Roseburg said during the transition, president of Roseburg resources Scott Folk will serve as the interim chief operations officer while the company conducts an internal and external search for a permanent COO.

Springfield, Ore.-based Roseburg Forest Products is a producer of medium density fiberboard, softwood and hardwood plywood, lumber, LVL, and I-joists. The company also owns and sustainably manages more than 600,00 acres of timberland in Oregon, North Carolina, and Virginia.
