Midland Paper, Packaging & Supplies one of the nation’s largest independently-owned fine paper and packaging distributors, announced today that Kevin Wade is retiring, effective April 1. Kevin has been a senior executive at Midland since 2015, when Midland acquired Shaughnessy Paper based in St. Louis, MO.

Kevin has had a long and distinguished career in the paper industry. After proudly serving his country in the United States Marine Corp, Kevin began his career with Reliable Paper in Chicago in 1968. He subsequently worked for Curtis Paper (1971-1974), and then Lewis Paper (1975-1984), before starting his own company, Wade Paper, in 1984. Kevin ran Wade Paper successfully for 25 years, before selling the business to Shaughnessy.

"It has been an honor and privilege to work with Kevin," stated Jim O’Toole, EVP of Publishing & Consulting, at Midland. "Kevin is a true pioneer in the paper industry, having started and successfully run his own paper brokerage company for 25 years. He is widely recognized in the paper industry as a successful entrepreneur, and highly regarded for being a true professional. Beyond that, he is a terrific person. All of us at Midland wish to thank Kevin for his many contributions, and we wish him, and Connie, a very happy retirement."
