The Alexander Lumber Board of Directors has announced an extension of Bill Cummings’ tenure as CEO of the company. Originally named interim CEO when Russ Kathrein stepped down from the position in July 2020, Cummings will maintain that role through 2021.
Cummings—an Alexander family and long-time board member—has led a strategic assessment of the company over the past six months.
“Digital technology is beginning to transform the manufacturing and delivery of the finished house to the home buyer,” Cummings said. “We have the team and resources to hone these capabilities. We have a plan in place for how we’ll go to market in 2021 and prioritize our investment in strategic technologies. We still have a lot to do to capitalize on the momentum we have built and the new opportunities we are focused on. Next year should be an exciting challenge for both me and the company.”
Watt Alexander, Alexander Lumber Board Chair, said, “The Board and the Alexander family are very pleased with the progress the company has made under Bill’s leadership. We look forward to working closely with him over the coming year.”
