FWPA thanks outgoing AFPA CEO Ross Hampton

28 November 2022 FWPA acknowledges and thanks Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) CEO Ross Hampton for his long and outstanding service to the Australian forest and wood products industry as he prepares to depart his role.

As CEO for the last ten years, Hampton has provided strategic leadership to AFPA from the beginnings of the organisation. He was instrumental in helping create mutually beneficial ties between agriculture and forestry and continues to promote forestry’s capacity in the fight against climate change, enhancing the industry’s positive impact.

“On behalf of FWPA, I extend our appreciation for Ross’ contribution to the wider industry,” said Andrew Leighton, FWPA CEO and former vice-Chair at AFPA.

“Having worked closely with Ross, his deep passion for and commitment to the forest and wood products industry is hard to miss, and his legacy will leave an indelible mark on our community.

“We wish him all the best on his new chapter in the UK and the next stage of his career.”

Prior to joining AFPA, Hampton worked in advisory and leadership positions in the federal government and private sector. He currently sits on the International Council of Forest and Paper Associations board and will continue in the role of AFPA CEO until early next year.
