Mr. Josephson began his career in the pulp and paper industry at the Olympic Research Division of ITT Rayonier, Inc. in 1978. His positions with ITT Rayonier include: Research Engineer, Senior Process Engineer, and Technical Manager. At the research division he conducted R&D projects in chemical process development for the Pulp and Paper industry and provided technical support for new plant startup. Subsequent technical and engineering improvement projects led to a transfer to operations. During this period Mr. Josephson served in technical and management positions covering responsibilities, which included: laboratory supervision, quality management, production supervision, engineering project management, and environmental impact and improvements. As technical manager of the Northwest Chemical Products Divison, he participated in the operating and capital improvement budgeting process for the plant and was responsible for the operating efficiencies, raw material utilizations, and capital improvement projects including construction oversight.
