EUGENE, OR — Seneca Sawmill Company (Seneca) has hired Cameron Krauss as its new Senior Vice President of Legal Affairs. In this role, Krauss will oversee all legal and public policy matters for the Seneca Family of Companies.

“Cameron is a seasoned leader with a solid background in legal affairs, both business and regulatory, and also has extensive experience in the policy arena,” said Todd Payne, Chief Executive Officer of Seneca.

Krauss earned a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Science from Oregon State University, and went on to receive his JD from the University of Oregon.

Along with handling Seneca’s day-to-day legal activities, he will continue to play a major role working in the natural resource community. He has served on several industry association boards and is currently both the Chairman and the Legal Chair of the American Forest Resource Council.
