The Seneca Family of Companies founder has shifted control of the company to his three daughters in a transition more than 30 years in the making.
Aaron Jones, who founded the Seneca Sawmill Co. in 1953, has handed control of the company to his daughters Becky, Jody and Kathy — all of whom have worked throughout the company over the past 25 years. The sisters will work alongside CEO Rick Re, who continues to run the company’s day-to-day operations.
Eugene-based Seneca — with companies that include Seneca Sawmill Co., Seneca Jones Timber Co., Seneca Sustainable Energy and Senca Noti — employs more than 375 and manages more than 165,000 acres of Oregon forestland. The company produces 485 million board feet of lumber annually.
