Houston Retiring from Boise Cascade


Boise, Idaho – Boise Cascade Company, headquartered in Boise, Idaho, has announced the retirement of Denny Huston, vice president of sales and marketing.  After nearly 50 years in the industry, he announced his intention to retire on May 1. Houston started out at his father’s lumber yard in Dubuque, Iowa at a young age and worked there through high school and college. He then went on to become vice president and sales manager at Roberts and Dybdahl, Inc. in Des Moines. Almost 23 years ago, he joined Boise Cascade to lead the engineered wood products sales and marketing team, and became a vice president in 2012.

During his tenure, Boise Cascade grew its engineered wood products business from two plants to six, and from $84 million in sales to $582 million.

Now that Boise Cascade is the largest producer of engineered wood products in the world, the Chicago Cubs have finally won the World Series, and the Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to an end, Houston will be retiring.

Houston and his wife of 43 years, Darcy, are looking forward to golfing, fishing, traveling and spending time with their grandchildren. Houston will also continue to work on his book titled “you can’t make this s — t up,” which chronicles the unbelievable experiences of his involvement in the lumber industry.
