PaperlinX Director and Chairman, David Meiklejohn, will retire end August after a decade term, since the Company’s ASX listing in 2000 when it demerged from Amcor.

According to Meiklejohn, he indicated his plans to retire in 2011, back at the last AGM in accordance with the Board’s succession programme.

“Now that the senior management transition has been bedded down by the Board and our CEO Toby Marchant has established his global management structure and team. I feel it appropriate for me to retire post the finalisation of the 2011 financial results and accounts,” he says.
Harry Boon, a 2008 appointed Director, will assume the role as Chairman effective 1 September.

“Many important milestones have been achieved under his (Meiklejohn’s) leadership and major changes have occurred in the Company and in the markets we serve,” says Boon.

Holding the reins of PaperlinX Pacific operations is Chris Creighton, president of Paperlinx North America, following the departure of Larry Jackson as executive general manager from PaperlinX Merchanting Australia.
