F&W Reorganizes Arkansas Operations, Appoints Two New Managers

April 2014 — F&W Forestry Services, Inc., one of the nation’s oldest and largest forestry management and consulting firms, has restructured its Southwest Gulf operations with the establishment of a new office in Texarkana, Texas.  The changes also include closure of its branch office at DeQueen, Ark., and appointment of two new regional managers.

Marshall Thomas, F&W president, said the new Texarkana office will better position the company to serve private landowners in East Texas and Northwest Louisiana while still continuing to serve clients in West Arkansas and Southeast Oklahoma. Thomas also announced closure of the DeQueen office.

Randy Jarzyniecki, who was previously based at F&W’s LaFayette, Ala., office, has been promoted to regional manager of the new Texarkana office.  Jarzyniecki, who joined F&W in 2005, holds a bachelor of science degree in forestry from Auburn University.   He is a member of the Society of American Foresters and the Texas and Oklahoma Forestry Associations.

As part of the change, Thomas announced that Brent Williamson has been promoted to the position of manager of the El Dorado office.  Prior to joining F&W in 2010, Williamson operated his own forestry and wildlife management firm in El Dorado for eight years.  Before that he was a research assistant at the School of Forest Resources at the University of Arkansas at Monticello.  Williamson holds a bachelor of science degree in wildlife management from the University of Arkansas and is a member of the Society of American Foresters and the Arkansas Forestry Association.
