Finch Paper LLC, Glens Falls, N.Y., USA, a producer of uncoated papers, this week announced the addition of Richard Oelkers as business development manager. Oelkers comes to Finch Paper from Lincoln Paper & Tissue, where he served as regional sales manager. Oelkers has also held senior sales positions with International Paper and Boise Inc.

Joining Finch Paper’s National Account team, Oelkers will be responsible for new business development among publishers, converters, and print resellers.

Oelkers said that Finch has been a formidable competitor, and he is happy to be joining a growing uncoated freesheet organization. "Finch is highly regarded for its product value and quality. I’ve always known Finch Opaque to be the ‘Cadillac’ of opaque papers," he said.

"Rick brings a wealth of market insight to the Finch team. He will be instrumental in building partnerships within new segments that utilize a broad portfolio of Finch products," said Clive Gillanders, director-National Accounts.

Finch Paper specializes in high-bright, uncoated papers for the North American printing markets, manufacturing 250,000 tons annually from its integrated pulp and paper mill in Glens Falls. Using advanced manufacturing systems, Finch produces a broad portfolio of opaque, text, and cover and digital papers for multi-press environments, including brands such as Finch Fine®, Finch Opaque, and Finch Inkjet Pi.
