Kodiak Building Partners appointed Tim Ferguson to the role of president of Christensen Lumber following Tom Christensen's transition to chairman. Ferguson most recently served as the vice president of sales and marketing for Christensen Lumber.

“Kodiak believes Tim is the ideal president to lead Christensen's next chapter of growth and success,” Mike Flood, executive vice president of operations at Kodiak Building Partners, said in a prepared statement. “We have all been impressed by his strong track record of innovation, execution, operational excellence, and developing teams that drive results. Tim is consistently delivering high growth during rapid periods of industry disruption, consumer change, and industry advancement. He is a terrific leader, and we’re excited about his and Christensen’s futures.”

Ferguson began his career at Christensen in 1994, working the sales counter. After a year, Ferguson was moved to the back counter and was later promoted to outside sales, where he remained until 2007. In 2007, Ferguson was promoted to the role of sales manager with the company.

“Tim has deep expertise in both sales and operations for the building materials industry. He has a well-earned reputation for being forthright, possessing a nuanced understanding of the industry and our processes, and adapting quickly to a rapidly changing landscape, making Time the perfect person for a fast-paced, historical company like ours,” chairman Tom Christensen said. “Christensen is actively working to make modern advances in the industry to build the best possible team with the end goal of delivering the best service to our customers.”

Following the promotion of Ferguson, Tom Christensen will move into an advisory role as chairman at the company. Christensen started with the company as a child and became president in 1999. The leadership change comes shortly before Christensen’s 100th anniversary, which will be celebrated in the spring of 2023.

"Christensen has become a significant player in the building materials industry and has already served as a powerful catalyst throughout the past century for building in the area,” Ferguson said. “The opportunity to lead Christensen and carry on the legacy that the Christensen family has worked so hard to build excites me for the future— with Tom as my guide during my transition to president and an amazing and committed leadership team, I am confident that the company will continue to flourish.”
