The American Wood Council (AWC) is pleased to announce that Jackson Morrill will become President and CEO of AWC on September 16, 2020.
Morrill brings over 20 years of experience working on sustainability, industry standards and testing, and environmental issues as a lawyer and trade association representative. Prior to joining AWC, Morrill served as President of the Composite Panel Association (CPA) and also worked as an environmental lawyer at Beveridge & Diamond. He holds a graduate degree from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from Tulane Law School.
“Jackson’s background shows him to be an outstanding choice to lead the industry and further leverage the unique aspects of wood products. Our selection committee was equally impressed by his demonstrated leadership, demeanor and outlook. AWC and CPA have worked together on a number of issues over the years, which gives him additional insight into AWC’s program focus on building and fire code development, legislative and regulatory advocacy, education and strategic communications. We are very excited to have him come in and lead the association to its next level of excellence,” said LP Building Solutions Executive Vice President and AWC Board Chair Neil Sherman.
