Executive Officer, Frame and Truss Manufacturers Association of Australia
Kersten joined the team at the Frame and Truss Manufacturers Association in 2009 and has been involved in the timber industry supply chain for well over 20 years. With generational involvement in the industry, she grew up with ‘sawdust in the boots’.
Kersten worked with government forestry departments and was State Manager and National Coordinator with Timber Communities Australia for more than 10 years. She believes that, even though timber has been used in construction for centuries, it is one of the most innovative building products of our time.
Kersten represents the association on various industry committees and boards, including such as Wood Products Victoria, Women in Forests and Timber Network, the Innovative Skills Program and ForestWorks.
Please welcome Kersten Gentle.
