TIMPRO Installs a New President
TIMPRO CT extends a special thanks to Scott Rogers who stepped down recently as President. During his tenure he oversaw the transition from pandemic restrictions to in-person events that included two CPR sessions and an Annual Meeting at Deer Park.
We now welcome incoming president Kyle Bruetsch. Kyle has been a member of the Board since 2017 and brings a wide range of experience in forestry and procurement both in and beyond Connecticut.
After graduating from Unity College in Maine with a major in wildlife conservation, he did a summer internship for the Metropolitan District Water Commission where he met several TIMPRO members. After that, he worked as procurement forester for J&J where he met Justin and Henry Gundlach. Next he spent 2 years with the TVA in Tennessee before returning to Connecticut J&J. He is now working for TIMPRO member Bob Carrington.
Kyle points out, “I’m one of a handful of under 50-year-olds. I want to make a career of this. I want to show people in Hartford that we don’t have to be a dying industry. I’ve got a lot of ideas. I can be a voice for change.”
When not working, he’s out hiking with his hound Dixie or visiting friends in Maine and Tennessee. He notes simply, “I’m happy in the woods.”
