The Nature Conservancy, one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, and NGO partner with Planet Green, has announced that have a new chairman of the board: Roger Milliken Jr, president and CEO of the Baskahgen Company.

Milliken had been a member of the Nature Conservancy board of directors since 2000, and a member of the Maine chapter’s board of trustees for over a decade. Regarding his new position, Milliken said,

I’m thrilled to be taking the helm at such a critical time in the Conservancy's history. With the Conservancy's global perspective and local presence in all 50 states and in more than 30 countries, the organization is well positioned to tackle global threats, like climate change, and help protect the natural systems around the world that sustain all life.  I look forward to working in this new role with the board and staff of the Conservancy and our many partners and supporters to help build a sustainable planet.

Milliken has been president of the Baskahagen Company, a forest products company from Maine, since 1989. Baskahagen manages more than 100,000 acres of forest in east Maine, and has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as ‘Well-Managed’ since 2004.
