Simon Callaghan

Forestry Manager

Simon Callaghan

Simon brings a wealth of knowledge of New Zealand forestry to his role at Craigpine, with over 28 years’ experience in the wood processing industry. He has worked with Fletcher Challenge, Rayonier and Dongwha New Zealand in procurement, manufacturing, logistics and forestry roles.

Simon has been with Craigpine for three and a half years. His primary responsibility as Forestry Manager is to keep the saw mill supplied with logs, from maintaining Craigpine’s own forests and supply, to sourcing wood from third parties, in the form of standing forests, cut logs and anything in between.

He enjoys the variety he gets in his role, from the forestry block to the corporate boardroom. Meeting with woodlot and plantation owners and getting outdoors into the forest is a real pleasure. He finds the flexibility and autonomy that he gets around procurement in his role as Forestry Manager at Craigpine refreshing.

Outside of work Simon enjoys spending time with his growing Southland family, particularly in the great outdoors.
