Employee Spotlight

  • Goodloe Chilcutt

    Forester

    I began my career with RMS as an intern in 2017 and was hired full-time after graduating with a forestry degree from Louisiana Tech University. I get up every day thinking about how to create value for our investors. My job entails ensuring that the timber products we grow on our investors’ lands are cultivated, harvested, sorted and sold to optimize their value. The atmosphere at RMS and the “go get ‘em” attitude we all share is a reflection of the RMS culture.
  • Mike McCorvey

    District Manager

    While overseeing forest operations, my work is a continuation of a lifetime spent outdoors and surrounded by nature. Like many at RMS, I grew up farming, hunting and fishing, while developing a special interest in forests and forestry. I am grateful to have built a career around managing forest resources sustainably, protecting water quality and bringing an overall stewardship ethic to the operation of our investors’ forests. RMS’ focus on teamwork and the supportive family atmosphere are an added bonus.

    Sheri Stephens

    Accounting Supervisor, International

    For over a decade, I’ve enjoyed working with RMS employees across the globe that share an unwavering commitment to operating as a team. My responsibilities focus on managing the financial data and metrics the company produces and monitors to manage our investors’ non-U.S. assets. While traveling to other parts of the world, I’m able to learn about local forest practices and the manufacturing industries that depend on them and the diverse cultures of my co-workers. This all makes for a rewarding work experience.

    Travis Hughes

    Senior Forest Planner

    At RMS, I have been exposed to virtually every aspect of forest investing, allowing me to chart a career path with a variety of opportunities to pursue both personal and professional interests. My job focuses on optimizing the biological productivity and long-term, financial performance of investors’ forests by developing strategies that allow RMS to create timber, land and non-forest values. I admire RMS’ focus on forestry and that it is managed by professional foresters who have a passion for what they do.

    Chris Martin

    Investment Associate, Brazil

    I was attracted to RMS because of my love for forests and the belief that generating strong investment performance through sustainable forest management benefits society. I think RMS does this by enhancing our environment and producing financial returns that benefit workers, retirees and organizations that have important societal missions. I see synergies between my own values and the stewardship that RMS embraces in meeting the needs of its investors.
