Karl started in the forest sector in 1995 with a job running equipment. In 1999, he got his first sawmill position – Karl began on the mill floor, worked up to equipment, became a millwright and then eventually became a supervisor. He’s been in the lumber industry ever since, joining Pacific Timber in 2011. He now acts as the General Manager and heads up the Brokerage division of our business.
Karl was born in Belgium and lived in Germany until the age of 15 when his family moved to Canada and set up a life in Burns Lake, BC. He loves the outdoor lifestyle that Burns Lake provides, and spends his time snowmobiling, side-by-siding, ocean fishing, and camping with his wife and two sons. Karl is especially grateful to live in a close-knit community where everybody works together.
