Sean Erwin Chosen as Keynote Speaker for Paper Hall of Fame’s Induction Ceremony
Sean Erwin, chairman of the board of directors and president and chief executive officer of Alpharetta, Georgia-based Neenah Paper, will deliver the keynote presentation at the Paper Industry International Hall of Fame’s 12th annual induction ceremony on September 28. The festivities will be held at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel in downtown Appleton, Wis.
The Hall of Fame—which recognizes individuals who pioneered and/or helped the world’s paper and allied industries to flourish—is anticipating the addition of six new honorees to its current membership of 70 notables from around the world. It is housed within the new Paper Discovery Center, an interactive museum celebrating everything related to paper, and is located along the banks of the picturesque Fox River at 425 W. Water Street in Appleton.
Erwin’s accomplished career with paper industry giants Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Neenah Paper, made him the top choice to headline this year’s prestigious ceremonies.
Erwin had been an employee of Kimberly-Clark Corporation prior to Neenah Paper’s spin-off from the Dallas-based company in December 2004. He started with Kimberly-Clark in 1978, and held increasingly senior positions in both finance and business management. In January 2004, Erwin was named president of Kimberly-Clark’s pulp and paper sector. Prior to that, he served as the president of Kimberly-Clark’s Global Nonwovens business from early 2001. Erwin has also served as the president of the European customer tissue business, managing director of Kimberly-Clark Australia, and president of the technical paper business for Kimberly-Clark.
