Remsoft Appoints Doug Jones as Vice President of Forestry

October 18th, 2011

Creation of New Position Supports the Company’s Thought Leadership,
Dedication and Continued Growth within Forestry 

FREDERICTON, New Brunswick – October 18, 2011 – Remsoft, the leading provider of asset lifecycle optimization solutions for land-based and infrastructure assets, today announced the promotion of Doug Jones to Vice President of Forestry. In this newly-created position, Jones, formerly director of Client Services at Remsoft, will provide Remsoft’s global forestry client base with exceptional service and ensure that the company continues to expand, enhance and perfect its asset lifecycle optimization solutions to meet forestry companies’ every need.

With over 15 years of experience, many in the industry look to Jones as the forestry evangelist.  In this dedicated position, he will help align Remsoft’s product innovation with the issues facing forestry companies today—simplifying the overall decision process and making analysis easier and more effective. Jones previously served as business development manager for the Forest Technology Group and before that worked as an independent forestry consultant serving major forest product companies and First Nation groups throughout Canada.

“We’re thrilled to announce the promotion of Doug to VP of Forestry.  We are seeing a drastic uptick in the number of forestry organizations taking advantage of advanced analytics to better prepare and execute on their resource management  plans in an eco-conscious and sustainable manner,” said Steve Palmer, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Remsoft.  “With Doug in this role we can be certain that Remsoft will continue to provide unparalleled service and solutions to our forestry customers new and old.”

Currently, over 200 clients on six continents are optimizing their natural resources with Remsoft software.  Washington State Department of Natural Resources, a state agency that protects and manages more than five million acres of land including forests, farms, commercial properties and underwater lands;  Timberwest, Western Canada’s largest private land management company, owning approximately 796,000 acres of private land on Vancouver Island, and Suzano, Brazil’s largest pulp and paper company and world’s largest producer of Eucalyptus pulp, are just a few of the companies realizing the benefits of Remsoft’s solution.

Next month, Jones will be speaking about the importance and benefits of implementing advanced analytics in the forest planning process at the Society of American Foresters: National Conference, being held from November 2-6 in Honolulu, Hawaii.  This is the 92nd national convention and will offer a program on the science and changing elements of forests among regions around the world, providing learning and sharing for all foresters and natural resource professionals.

Jones is a former professional hockey player who played with teams in Sweden, Denmark and Italy and holds an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree in geography and economics from the University of Western Ontario and a Masters of Forestry from the University of New Brunswick.
