The History of Universal Forest Products

Peter Secchia is Chairman of the Board of Universal Forest Products, Inc., a fortune 500 industrial company. UFP encompasses 40 manufacturing, wood preservation plants and distribution centers throughout the United States and Canada. He is also Chairman of River City Food Company, a company of 29 restaurants, catering and banquet facilities in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Honored in 1994 as Michigan’s Master Entrepreneur of the Year, he was recognized as the state’s outstanding self-made business man.  In 1995 the Economic Club of West Michigan named him Businessman of the Year. As the U.S. Ambassador to Italy from June 1989 through January 1993, he was hailed for his discretion, endless work hours and ceaseless travel throughout the country, and presented with the Cavaliere di Gran Croce (The Knight of the Great Cross). This is the Republic of Italy’s highest award given only on rare occasions for exceptional service in international affairs. He also received the Department of State Distinguished Honor Award for "having a major impact on U.S. foreign policy." He was the only serving U.S. Ambassador to receive this award in many years, an honor rarely accorded to non-career ambassadors.
