The chairman of Catalyst Paper, Leslie Lederer, will take over as interim president and chief executive officer when Kevin J. Clarke's departs from his position as Catalyst CEO and board member at the end of June.

Lederer is a director of the company, and a former industry executive with Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation. He has extensive experience in the industry, and is a member of the Illinois Bar.

The board has been conducting an executive search since Clarke announced his departure in April. Clarke is leaving the company and the board to return to his home in the state of New York where his family resides.

Lederer's appointment will enable the board to complete the executive search in due course and will facilitate a seamless transition once a new chief executive officer is selected.

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