Executive Director
Peter Hyne

Peter Hyne

Peter Hyne is a fifth generation Hyne family member who joined Hyne Timber in January 1980 on completion of Senior Schooling. Whilst Peter is an active Board Member and shareholder, Peter also continues to work within the business in the role of Manager, Sales and Distribution. The Hyne Timber salesforce, seven Distribution Centres, three Mill despatch operations, and Marketing Team all presently report to Peter.

During his employment with Hyne Timber, Peter’s career has transitioned through initially being appointed as a Treatment Plant Operator, then progressing to complete a Timber Industry Cadetship during 1981-84. The cadetship or Trainee Manager course had curriculum content as well as hands-on practical application in the various business unit operations across the Company. On completion of his Cadetship, Peter was appointed as a Sales Clerk in the main office located at Maryborough.

In the period 1988 to 1995, Peter successively managed the Gold Coast Wholesale Branch then the South Brisbane Wholesale Branch, after which he commenced working with the Araucaria Sales Office at Virginia following the acquisition of ACI Timber Products by Hyne Timber. In late 1996, Peter was appointed as Assistant to the General Manager – Sales, which saw Peter gain experience in:

  • Negotiating large customer supply agreements
  • Development and negotiation of customer trading and rebate agreements
  • All customer pricing and internal transfer pricing systems
  • OH&S, EBAs, and staff training
  • MIS implementation

 

On retirement of the General Manager – Sales, and following a decision to sell-off the retail arm of the business, Peter was promoted to the role of General Manager – Wholesale and charged with responsibility to develop the wholesale activities. During his tenure, the wholesale division grew from seven to 12 branches – and a major push into NSW and Victoria was facilitated by the development of the Tumbarumba Mill in the following few years.

Other changes to the Wholesale Division have included the introduction of new products – particularly Engineered Timber Products, Imported Hardwood Decking, Plywood and OSB Brace Board, and Pre-Primed LOSP treated products ex New Zealand and Chile. Hyne Timber have also developed a large export business, exporting up to 380 containers per month to many South East Asian countries.

With company restructuring and simplification during 2010-2012, Peter has retained responsibility for Sales & Distribution as well as the Marketing Operations. His grass-roots operational experience, product and market knowledge continue to be valuable both in fulfilling his role within the business and in executing his role on the Board.
