Miami-based Amazonas Florestal Ltd., a diversified forest product company focused on sustainable forestry practices, recently announced a roster of new officers and directors along with outlining plans for business in 2016.
Nitin Amersey takes his post as new CEO, relieving interim CEO Ricardo Cortez, who will remain chairman of the board. Additionally, Peter (Pepper) W. Stebbins returns to the firm as COO and board member. Amersey, bringing over three decades of agricultural and natural resources leadership, will also serve on the board.
In addition to forestry, Amazonas Florestal deals in carbon credits and industrial hemp sales. The company, which intends to file a S-1 registration statement by Feb. 15, has completed audits and signed an equity line to score funding for its three branches of business with the plan to become fully reporting in the year’s first quarter, Chairman Cortez said.
“Stebbins will be instrumental in operating our Brazilian subsidiary, the acquisition of which is now being completed,” Cortez said. “This enables us to initiate and complete the carbon studies necessary to certify the carbon credits available on these properties in 2016. Mr. Amersey completes our management team and is a valuable addition to our board, directing significant studies and further developing our industrial hemp and wood subsidiaries."
JC Ubieto, director and company IRO, reported that Amazonas Florestal continues to grow and has engaged E & E Communications, founded and managed by Paul Knopick, for communications to shareholders and investors.
