Dunn Paper has appointed a new president and CEO.

David Apollonio will lead the organization from the company’s new North American headquarters located in Alpharetta, Ga.

Apollonio joins Dunn as a tenured paper executive and leader having managed multiple P&Ls both domestically and internationally for International Paper for over 25 years.


Most recently, Apollonio was vice-president and general manager of North American Container.

“Dave’s extensive experience and leadership comes at an opportune time for Dunn as we continue investing in product innovation and expanding our manufacturing capabilities,” says Sieg Buck, Dunn chairman and interim CEO, in a statement.

“I’m confident that Dave, with his leadership team, will deliver the strategy and guidance to drive this next phase of Dunn’s growth.”

The investment into a new headquarters in Alpharetta centralizes the paper and tissue company under Apollonio while accommodating for growth and addition of key functional leaders.

“I’m excited to join the Dunn Paper team at this important inflection in our growth,” says Apollonio in a statement.

“Dunn Paper has a solid business model that has built momentum this year with our customers, stepping up and providing paper solutions to the industries that have needed it most.”
