CMPC has appointed Francisco Ruiz-Tagle Edwards as its new chief executive following the resignation of Hernán Rodríguez Wilson.

Ruiz-Tagle Edwards is the current chief executive of the company’s pulp subsidiary.

Both his appointment and the resignation of Rodríguez Wilson will be effective as of 1 August.

Rodríguez Wilson joined the company in 1987 and has been part of the development and investment process that led CMPC to have industrial operations in eight countries in Latin America, over 17,000 staff and positions in the pulp, wood, packaging and tissue markets.

He was also responsible for leading the development, construction and start-up processes of the Guaíba II pulp mill in Brazil, the expansion of the tissue business and the implementation of a renewed sustainability policy.
