Bill Wheeler

Business Relationship Manager - East Coast

Bill knew after a short stint working for the New Zealand Forestry Service in the school holidays that this was the career for him. He completed his forestry degree in 1989.  Bill has been with Ernslaw One since 2009 and is responsible for providing leadership across forestry, harvesting and engineering operations in the East Coast region balancing commercial performance with safety and environmental compliance.  A key component of his role is ensuring all policies, procedures, and processes are being followed and that they are meeting or exceeding all legislative and industry standard requirements.

Bill is delighted that his son is following him into the forestry industry after completing his forestry degree.

Bill’s passion for wood extends to woodturning and as the Secretary of the Gisborne Woodturning Group, Bill spends some of his spare time making everything from pens and bowls to tables, as well as wooden toys for children’s charities.  When he’s not on the tools, he can be found biking the countryside and photographing nature.
