Kevin J. Clarke, currently president and CEO, and a director of Catalyst Paper, will continue on the new board.

In preparing to turn governance of Catalyst to the new board of directors, chairman Marshall noted that many parties played a vital role in ensuring the second amended Plan of Arrangement was approved by creditors and the courts.

“To achieve this result in such a timely fashion would not have been possible without the dedication and unwavering support of employees, unions, management team, customers, suppliers, retirees and pensioners, as well as the communities where Catalyst operations are located,” he noted.

Catalyst Paper manufactures diverse specialty mechanical printing papers, newsprint and pulp.
