The International Council of Forest and Paper Associations (ICFPA) has named Donna Harman as its president.
Harman, president and CEO of the American Forest and Paper Association, will serve in the role for the next two years.
She succeeds Teresa Presas, director general of the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), as ICFPA president.
Harman said: “The forest and paper industry manufactures products that serve the everyday needs of people around the world, and I look forward to representing the global forest and paper industry in the coming years.”
ICFPA has 41 forest and paper association members from North and South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Oceania and aims to promote cooperation and dialogue in areas of interest to its members.
