IWP President Officially Retires

Dave Stelle has officially retired as president at International Wood Products, Clackamas, Or., after 45 years, the last 26 with IWP.

Stelle, who joined IWP in 1996, has spent the past year dedicated to transitioning the role of president into the capable hands of Josh Hamilton.

Doug Hart, IWP’s CEO, said, “Sometimes in life you’re lucky enough to have a friend and partner like Dave Stelle. And I was lucky to have Dave; he was good luck! Not often do you find a smart leader, with a kind style of putting others first. And that is just one reason Dave has been such a strong leader for us at IWP!”

Stelle will now have time to spend with his family and friends, enjoying the Ranch in Camp Sherman, and working toward a second Tualatin Country Club Grand Championship.
