President & CEO
Mike grew up in Morton, WA where Alta’s flagship mill sits today and began working at that mill - then owned by TMI Forest Products - as a lumber grader and stacker in 1973. Mike worked his way through the organization and was in due course given the opportunity to demonstrate both his managerial talents, and his unique and creative aptitude for mill design. He has been instrumental in introducing thin band kerf technology into the fencing industry, and developing the first ever computerized grading and sorting system for fence boards. He was also vitally influential in the formation of Alta Forest Products. In addition to being President & CEO of Alta Forest Products, Mike is Vice President of E.R. Probyn Ltd.
