RICHMOND — The Paper Excellence Group has updated its organizational structure for business units following the recent acquisitions of Resolute Forest Products in March 2023 and Domtar in November 2021.

Steve Henry, currently Domtar’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, has been named President of the Paper & Packaging business unit with responsibility for all legacy Domtar pulp, paper and packaging operations as well as Paper Excellence Canada’s Port Alberni and Crofton mills. Henry is a pulp and paper executive with 28 years of industry expertise.

The leader of the Pulp & Tissue business unit consisting of all legacy Resolute pulp, paper and tissue operations as well as the non-integrated Paper Excellence Canada pulp mills will be announced at a later date. Richard Tremblay will continue to serve as Senior Vice-President, pulp, paper and tissue operations, and John Lafave will serve as Senior Vice-President, pulp and tissue sales. Tremblay and Lafave will serve as co-leaders of the business unit until a permanent leader is named.

Hugues Simon will continue to serve as President of the Wood Products business unit. Steve Henry, Richard Tremblay, John Lafave and Hugues Simon will report to the Paper Excellence management board, chaired by Non-Executive Chairman John Williams, former President and Chief Executive Officer of Domtar.

“My heartfelt congratulations to Steve, Richard, John and Hugues. Each of them brings extensive experience, demonstrated success, and a commitment to continuous improvement,” said Williams. “We have assembled an impressive team of business leaders who are uniquely qualified to deliver superior results and position the organization for continued growth.”
