Charlotte, N.C. (Vocus) September 21, 2010
Forest2Market® announces today that Bill Nocerino has been named Manager of its Lumber Division. Nocerino will handle sales for the wholesale lumber market, concentrating specifically on the Mill2Market℠ product line, which includes weekly lumber price reports and lumber price benchmarks. Nocerino will work out of Forest2Market’s Charlotte, NC headquarters.
“With current market conditions, buyers and sellers in the wholesale lumber trade need transparent and accurate pricing data more than ever,” says Pete Stewart, Forest2Market’s President and CEO. “For the last year, Mill2Market has reported market prices for lumber in a way that is unprecedented, with price and volume data aggregated directly from orders and invoices. Now, with the addition of Bill to the staff, we’ll see more focused emphasis placed on reaching the prospective customers who need this data and on maintaining those relationships over the long term.”
Nocerino has over ten years of experience in the industry, more than six of them with Robbins Manufacturing in Florida. There, he worked his way up through the ranks to Sales Manager. He also served as President of Follen Wood Preserving in Mississippi and as an Account Manager at Universal Forest Products, where he worked to rebuild the company’s market share for treated lumber products and accessories.
“We anticipate Nocerino’s expertise will forge long-lasting ties for Forest2Market in the wholesale lumber market and look forward to broadening our presence in, and service to, the industry,” said Stewart.
