In 2000, building on more than 15 years of forest products industry experience, Pete Stewart created Forest2Market when he began collecting transaction-level timber pricing data. Under his leadership, Forest2Market continues to grow, developing new products and services to meet the needs of a changing industry.
Stewart has appeared at numerous industry meetings and conferences and has been published in leading industry journals and magazines. He is widely known as one of the industry's leading wood supply chain experts.
Before founding Forest2Market, Stewart led the development of the industry's first Web-based forest inventory management and mapping system, was responsible for planning and harvest schedules for $350 million of institutional forestland and led acquisition projects in Argentina and Brazil. He was actively involved in many of the major Southern timberland transactions between 1994 and 1999.
Stewart received his bachelor's degree in forestry from Texas A&M University and his master's degree in forest economics from the University of Georgia.
