Outdoor Living Manufacturing (‘OLM’ or the ‘Company’) was established in 2004 as a partnership between Waldun Forest Products and Outdoor Living Today. The company designs and manufactures gazebos, sheds, playhouses, gardening kits, and custom outdoor canopies in kit format at its manufacturing facility located in Penticton, BC. Products are made primarily from sustainably produced Western Red Cedar and are sold primarily online in Canada and the US through a dealer network and major retailers, with some direct sales. Administrative support functions are provided by Waldun staff who are located at Waldun’s head office in Maple Ridge, BC.
A number of the company’s products are patented and the brand has an excellent reputation and high growth potential. In order to expand the company and take it to its next level of growth, the shareholders have identified the need to establish a new Chief Executive Officer (‘CEO’) role who will bring a strategic mindset and a broad business background to complement the skill set of the existing leadership team. This will include developing a growth strategy that could include expansion into new markets, product diversification and potential acquisitions. The ideal candidate will have a university degree, preferably an MBA or other relevant designation, and previous senior leadership experience in forestry, lumber, or value-add wood products manufacturing. The CEO could be based at the site in Penticton or at Waldun’s head office in Maple Ridge, with the expectation that they will visit Penticton on a monthly basis, at minimum.
