Collins Appoints TJ Rosengarth President & CEO

Collins has appointed TJ Rosengarth as President & CEO. Rosengarth succeeds Eric Schooler and assumed responsibilities on February 15.

Rosengarth is well known for his extensive background in the wood products industry, including stints with Willamette Industries in composite panels (1985-2000), Weyerhaeuser as VP of Composite Panels (2001-2006), Flakeboard as Chief Operating Officer (2007-2011), and Northwest Hardwoods as President and CEO (2011-2018). Most recently he served as a partner with a private equity firm where his focus was acquiring companies.

“TJ is the right and best choice for our company to lead us forward,” states Cherida Collins Smith, Board Chair. “He has a depth of experience and success in our industry, which is especially important during these challenging times. He embodies the ethics and values that have been and continue to be core to our company.”

Rosengarth received an Operations Management degree from Portland State University as well as Executive Management Studies from Stanford University.

Based in Wilsonville, Ore., Collins has been family-owned since 1855. It operates softwood sawmills in Chester, Calif. and Lakeview, Ore., hardwood sawmill in Kane, Pa., particleboard and siding/trim operations in Klamath Falls, Ore.

Collins upholds its long-standing commitment to land and resource stewardship with more than 311,000 acres of FSC-certified forestlands. Collins was the first privately-owned forest products business in the U.S. to be certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
