About Corterra, Inc
I worked 10 years in the forest products industry for a manufacturer of knife systems before
leaving the company and starting Corterra in January of 2013. During my previous employment, I
was the regional manager of South America from 2006-2010 and lived in Santiago, Chile. Corterra
will initially be selling knife systems in South America, and eventually enter the North American
market. I graduated with a BA in Business from Washington State University in 1998.
Below is an example of the knife system cutting wood and knife, one of many similar illustrations
that I will need improved:
