Domtar Corporation announced today that president and CEO John Williams’ retirement date will be June 30, 2023. Williams has planned to leave the company after 14 years in his leadership role; however, he will continue as a part-time advisor regarding strategic growth opportunities.

The current senior vice-president of packaging, Steve Henry, has been appointed to the role of executive vice-president and chief operating officer effective immediately. Henry will lead the pulp, paper and packaging operations and commercial functions at Domtar, before succeeding Williams, who will continue to lead all corporate functions until his retirement.

“Steve has been a smart and dependable leader during his career at Domtar. I have relied on his expertise over the years, most recently as he engineered Domtar’s entry into the packaging business,” said Williams. “In 2023, we will celebrate our 175th year in business. I am confident that Steve is the right leader for this time in Domtar’s history.”
