UFP President and COO to Retire End of 2022

UFP Industries, Grand Rapids, MI., announced that President and COO Pat Webster will retire at the end of 2022 after a remarkable career spanning nearly four-decades at the company. Over the next several months, Webster’s duties will be transferred to existing or new members of the leadership team as part of the company’s 2020 reorganization plan.

Webster joined UFP in 1985. He began as a production manager and later took on roles in sales, purchasing, and management, including vice president of operations and divisional president. He was named president and COO at the end of 2008.

“Pat’s talents, leadership and drive will be dearly missed at UFP,” said CEO Matthew J. Missad. “He learned UFP from the ground floor and developed great relationships all along his climb through the organization. He took on challenges at every level and improved struggling operations–as well as good ones–always demonstrating his hard work, desire to help others improve, and loyalty to UFP.”

“It has been my honor working alongside so many great people throughout my career,” Webster said. “I want to thank our great customers, mill partners and our UFP family for their contributions to a rewarding journey. I feel fortunate leaving the company in the hands of a talented group of leaders who share my vision, values, and work ethic.”
