The Two Sides North America (TSNA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the election of four new Board members to serve two-year terms beginning January 1, 2022:
Vanecia Carr, Domtar Corporation; Edward Jansen, Canon Solutions America, Inc.; Jim Montague, Sylvamo Corporation; Lindsay Murphy, American Forest and Paper Association
“We are pleased to have these four outstanding professionals join the Two Sides Board,” said TSNA Board Chairman Jeffrey Hester of International Paper. “Their extensive industry experience and leadership combined with their passion for sustainability will be invaluable as we take Two Sides’ efforts to the next level.
“As their second Board terms end, we also wish to express our sincere thanks to John Milazo of Domtar and Mark Pitts of the American Forest and Paper Association for their many contributions and leadership to the TSNA Board and to Two Sides continuing success,” Hester added. According to TSNA’s bylaws, Directors may serve only two consecutive two-year terms.
In other business, The TSNA Board elected William Rojack, MIDLAND, to succeed Hester as Board Chairman effective January 1.
“Two Sides has accomplished a great deal in its first 10 years, but there is much more to do as the print, paper and paper-based packaging industry continues to confront unsubstantiated claims about the sustainability of our industry and our products,” Rojack says. “I look forward to leading TSNA’s talented Board as we look for new ways to share our industry’s great sustainability story and as we directly respond to misleading environmental claims in ways that individual companies and other organizations cannot.”
