In 1973, after reviving a shuttered mill, Frank Dottori founded what was to become Tembec, a global forest products company with 55 mills located throughout three continents. Over 33 years, he grew it into a $4 million multinational company, experiencing great success and later some loss as Canadian lumber exports decreased in line with lower demand for certain paper products. Since stepping down from Tembec, Mr. Dottori assumed top-dog position at Fadco Consulting, where he analyzes new technologies in the biochemical and biotech industries, strategically evaluating production costs for forestry products. He is also a partial owner of White River Forest Products, which employs more than 100 people from First Nations communities.
