Domtar’s board of directors has appointed Daniel Buron, senior vice-president and chief financial officer, to assume Williams’s authority and responsibility until he returns from his leave of absence.

Buron will continue in his role as senior vice-president and CFO.


“[Domtar], its board and employees all wish John a speedy recovery and look forward to his return,” the company says, adding that business is expected to operate normally in Williams’s absence.
