Jacksonville, Fla.-based forest products company Rayonier is going through a bit of a breakup. The company announced Monday that it is spinning off its fibers business from its forest resources and real estate business, forming two separate publicly traded companies.

“With an improving U.S. housing market, strong timber export markets, and the successful expansion of our cellulose specialties capacity, we concluded that now is the optimal time to pursue the separation of these two non-integrated businesses,” said chairman, president and CEO Paul Boynton.

Raynoier's board of directors has promoted Lynn Wilson to the post of EVP forest resources.

Prior to her role at Rayonier, she served as VP operations support at Plum Creek, where she had held several roles of increasing responsibility.
