Two new AF&PA directors

At its June 28 board meeting, Washington, DC-based American Forest & Paper Assn. elected Resolute Forest Products president and CEO Yves Laflamme and Sonoco Products Company president and CEO Robert Tiede to serve on its 23-member board of directors.

AF&PA president and CEO Donna Harman said the two men “bring deep industry experience and valuable leadership to the table as we work to advance the paper and wood products industry’s top advocacy priorities. We are one of the largest manufacturing sectors in the nation – eager to innovate and invest in the future with the help of common sense public policy, including regulatory reform, free and fair trade and efficient transportation measures.

“Together, we will put our companies’ compelling story and its needs before the administration, Congress and decision makers at the federal and state levels so they can take the action necessary to help us grow the economy and create American manufacturing jobs.”

Laflamme fills the seat left by the retirement of Resolute president and CEO Richard Garneau and Tiede fills the seat left by the retirement of Sonoco president and CEO M. Jack Sanders.
