NewPage, Miamisburg, Ohio, USA, announced that James C. Tyrone has accepted the role of EVP, Commercial Operations and Business Development, effective February 1. He will report to George F. Martin, president and CEO.

Effective with Tyrone's return, the Sales and Marketing, Order Management, and Strategy groups will be realigned under his direction. Barry Nelson, SVP, Sales and Marketing, will report directly to Tyrone and retain his current roles and responsibilities, as will Linda McClinchy, VP, Order Management, and Curtis Short, VP, Strategy.

Tyrone was most recently with Appleton Papers, where since 2010 he served as SVP responsible for Appleton's thermal paper business unit and oversight of the company's paper manufacturing operations. He started his paper industry career with The Mead Corp. in 1990, serving in a variety of roles. When Mead and Westvaco merged, Tyrone was SVP of Sales and Marketing, a role he continued when NewPage started in May 2005. Before Mead, he worked for seven years as a senior manager for McKinsey & Co.

NewPage operates paper mills in Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, with a total annual production capacity of some 3.5 million tons of paper. The company's product portfolio includes coated, specialty, supercalendered, and uncoated papers.
