North American Forest Foundation Welcomes Allison DeFord as new Executive Director.
Collierville, Tennessee, February 3, 2020 – The North American Forest Foundation (NAFF) is excited to welcome a new Executive Director to the team. Although this is her first job in the forest products industry, she’s not new to the culture or mission. Being married to a lumberman for over 31 years will do that. DeFord grew up in Anderson, Indiana. Upon graduating from high school, she travelled west and planted roots in Southern California, where she’s lived since 1986. She has a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from California State University at Long Beach. And is also a member of non-profit, Women in Manufacturing.
As the founder of Felt Marketing, since 1994, she’s also no stranger to building materials and wood-related organizations. Felt specializes in marketing retrofits for manufacturers and primarily those in building materials. She can also be heard leading courageous conversations about sales and marketing for manufacturers on her weekly podcast with Ray Ziganto, MFG OutLoud.
