Effective January 29th Mike Fraser will assume the newly created role of Commodity Wood Products Manager-Eastern Canada. In this role Mike will be responsible for working with Lumber, OSB and Plywood mills to create effective purchasing programs for Sexton Members from Ontario to Newfoundland.

Mike was formerly the Senior Panel and Lumber buyer for ALPA Forest Products. In total Mike has been in the industry 30 years. His experience and relationships will contribute to creating a powerful business opportunity for both suppliers and Sexton Members.


“I am thrilled with these recent developments Dave Pratt and Jordan Rothwell are talented entrepreneurs and their organizations are influential in Ontario. I appreciate their confidence in Sexton Group. The ability to add someone of Mike Fraser’s caliber and acumen to our team is a real coup and will accelerate our progress in Eastern Canada.

It should also be said that four short years ago Rick Royce, working with a bold group of Sexton Members in Western Canada, created The Commodity Wood Council which has since purchased millions of dollars of commodity wood products from supporting Mills. This concept features total price transparency, information sharing and total confidentiality allowing Members and Mills to benefit greatly. It is unique to Sexton Group and the most profound innovation in the buying group business in many years. We welcome the opportunity to bring this concept to Eastern Canada.
