BELGRADE — Maine-based Hammond Lumber Co. announces the appointment of Mike Hammond as president and CEO.

Vice president for the past 20 years, Hammond is following a natural succession as did his father, Don Hammond, the previous president since 1997, who will become vice president.

Based in Belgrade, the company was founded in 1953 by Clifton “Skip” Hammond, who borrowed $50 from his wife, Verna. The couple bought a sawmill and started the lumber business. The company now has 13 retail stores around the state, as well as Hammond’s Maine Pine Log Homes division, which manufactures and markets log-home building packages. In 2016, Hammond Lumber Company had sales revenue of $151 million.

Mike Hammond, who represents the third generation in the Hammond family, started working at Hammond Lumber Company in high school. He later received his bachelor of science degree in business administration from the University of Southern Maine. He is a life-long Belgrade native, married, with two daughters.
