Mahogany Industry Company seeks CEO

The Fiji Hardwood Corporation Limited (FHCL), which was mired in controversy recently and has not been profitable since its establishment, is seeking a new Chief Executive Officer. The Fiji Times today, Saturday, 14 April 2007, contains the advertisement.

Advertised by the Corporation's Board Chairman, the person sought is expected to :
  • develop and executive a strategic plan which will lead FHCL towards becoming a fully-fledged commercial business;
  • transform the organisation into one which is client focused and commercially oriented;
  • build current relationships and establish new business relationships with potential business customers;
  • develop a good rapport with mahogany landowners within the parameters of a commercial working environment;
  • ensure the financial health of the business;
  • risk management and ensuring that the operations of FHCL are compliant with the relevant legislation, regulations and professional standards;
  • accurate and timely reporting to the board and relevant Government Ministries;
  • staff management and development;
  • have a relevant degree and previous management experience in the forestry or timber industry.

The mahogany industry has the potential of being a high foreign exchange earner for Fiji given the demand now for mahogany products and furniture from overseas.

Given the impressive requirements listed above, I am sure that the industry and the FHCL will have an interesting future to look forward to.

If you feel that you have the appropriate credentials, send an application to FHCL's Chairman of the Board of Directors, Mr Winston Thomson, by e-mail on or telephone him on (679) 3322679. Applications close on Friday, 20 April 2007.
