Pinnacle Names Duncan Davies As CEO
Pinnacle Renewable Energy has appointed Duncan Davies as Chief Executive Officer, effective November 1, replacing Rob McCurdy, whose retirement plans were announced earlier this year. Davies will continue to serve on the company’s Board of Directors, which he joined in April 2020.
From 2000 to 2019, Davies served as president and CEO of Interfor Corp., a publicly traded forest products company with operations in Canada and the U.S. In that role he led the transformation of Interfor from a small regional producer, located primarily on the BC Coast, into one of the largest lumber companies in the world.
“Duncan is an accomplished leader with extensive industry knowledge and the experience necessary to drive Pinnacle’s growth and profitability in the years ahead,” comments Greg Baylin, Chair of the Company’s Board of Directors. “He has worked actively with Rob McCurdy and our Management Team since joining the Board this spring and has already made a significant contribution to our company. I would also like to thank Rob McCurdy for his significant impact on the growth and development of the business during his Pinnacle career.”
Davies comments, “I have known the company for many years and have long admired their sense of ambition and entrepreneurship. I am excited by the opportunity to lead a company of Pinnacle’s stature in the next stage of its development and look forward to helping build significant and sustainable value for its shareholders, customers, employees and the communities in which it operates.”
Davies will be based at the company’s headquarters in Richmond, BC.
