Shelton, WA (March 17, 2014) — RedBuilt and Olympic Panel and Veneer Products, both subsidiaries of Atlas Holdings, recently named Don Schwabe as chief marketing and business development officer.
In his new position, Schwabe will serve in leadership roles for both companies. At Olympic Panel and Veneer Products, a West-Coast veneer-based business made up of operations in Shelton and Omak, Wash., he will help reshape the company’s overall marketing and sales strategy. For RedBuilt, a Boise-based company specializing in engineered wood products and structural systems for commercial and industrial applications, he will lead product and business development efforts.
“Don’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge make him a key addition to the RedBuilt and Olympic Panel families,” says Kurt Liebich, CEO of RedBuilt and Olympic Panel and Veneer Products. “We are fortunate to add someone of his caliber to our management teams.”
Prior to RedBuilt and Olympic Panel, Schwabe worked in various sales, marketing, and leadership roles for Trus Joist and Weyerhaeuser over the past 25 years. Most recently, he led the U.S. sales of Trus Joist engineered wood products for Weyerhaeuser. He also served as the company’s director of marketing for engineered products, which included both engineered lumber and oriented strand board (OSB). Schwabe received an MS in management from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a BS in forest products marketing from the University of Minnesota.
Moving forward, Schwabe plans to aggressively grow each company’s respective position in the marketplace. “Both RedBuilt and Olympic have a strong heritage and are leading brands in commercial and industrial construction,” he says. “It is a privilege to be part of their teams and help expand the businesses.”
