Tim Saunders, new team member

Brunette Machinery is pleased to announce and welcome our new team member, Tim Saunders, specializing in Business Development. Previously affiliated with companies such as Canfor and Conifex, Tim is now an integral member of our sales team, whose expertise will further support our customers.

Tim combines his 25 years of business experience with a passion for the technological growth of the forest industry. His electrical and automation background, as well as his extensive work in multiple areas of plant management, make a welcome addition to our already resourceful group.

The majority of Tim’s career has revolved around the forest industry where he developed an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the sector. His experience in this field encompassed many roles, such as: control system design, machine/plant commissioning, troubleshooting, sawmilling flow and strategies. The scope of his work ranged from project development including budget creation, risk analysis, managing stakeholder relationships through to project execution and completion. Asked to describe what he does, Tim’s response is “Combining the identification of productivity opportunities with innovative control solutions for optimum performance.”

Before he embarked upon his career in the industry, Tim graduated from the University College of the Cariboo as a Computer Automated Systems Technician in 2000. He also studied to be a Journeyman Electrician at SAIT in Alberta and attained his Journeyman status in 2004.

Tim and his wife, Jenn operate a 600+ acre farm 30 minutes west of Prince George and a burgeoning direct meat marketing business. They have 55 head of cattle, a dozen or so pigs and a flock of chickens. When they are not out in the field with the cows or in their 20’x60’ greenhouse, you can find them outdoors quadding or boating with their two young sons.

Welcome to Team Brunette, Tim!
