Peter Bentley Retires from the Canfor and Canfor Pulp Board of Directors

By Don Kayne, President and CEO

Last week marked Mr. Peter Bentley’s official retirement from both the Canfor and Canfor Pulp Board of Directors. This was announced at both companies’ Annual General Meetings held May 1. 

Mr. Bentley, former CEO and Chairman, is the son of company co-founder, L.L.G. “Poldi” Bentley, and has been a part of this company since a very young age. Over his 75-year tenure with the company, he has been an invaluable member of Canfor and is known for his leadership, respect for employees and dedication. The age of 14 marks his official first day and his long history with the company includes 53 years on the Board of Directors, 24 years as Chairman of the Board of Directors and over 10 years as CEO.

We encourage you to watch this video that was created in honour of Mr. Bentley’s retirement. It provides an excellent overview of his incredible career and the origins of Canfor.
