Ian Tyson stepping down as Timberlink CEO

5 November 2023
Ian Tyson will retire as Chief Executive Officer of Timberlink Australia & New Zealand at the end of this calendar year. Ian commenced in the role of CEO when Timberlink was first formed on 1st February 2013, and through his leadership over the last ten years, Ian has led the business through challenging times, ensuring positive returns; from the early days of operational stability to what is now a well-honed and strategically focused organisation delivering significant beneficial outcomes.

There have been many achievements and transformative projects that Ian has led during his time as CEO, and there are none greater than the evolution of NeXTimber®, Timberlink’s mass timber manufacturing business, and Timberlink’s wood-composite manufacturing products. These two projects were borne through Ian’s unwavering drive and focus on innovation which allowed Timberlink to grow from a timber processing focussed business into a much broader manufacturing and construction solutions focussed business.

Ian has led with integrity, and this has been underpinned by the values that were developed many years ago to ensure that everyone at Timberlink conducts themselves in a way that makes Timberlink a great place to work. We wish Ian all the best in his well-earned retirement.
