Marcal Paper Mills, Elmwood Park, N.J., USA, has named Fred Smagorinsky its new CEO. Smagorinsky most recently served as CEO of New Jersey-based Schofield Stone, a privately held quarrier, fabricator, wholesaler, and retailer of natural stone products, where he made key, strategic acquisitions, significantly expanded the company's presence in the southeastern region, and navigated a challenging economic climate through disciplined cost, asset, and cash management.

"I'm joining a talented team at an exciting time, with consumer awareness of recycled paper goods and their environmental benefits growing rapidly," Smagorinsky said. "I've been a longtime fan of Marcal's products and recycled production process, so I come here with a special sense of enthusiasm and energy," he said. "This is a company with not just great products, but great people who embrace our company's green heritage, people who know what they do matters, and will be our strongest asset in taking Marcal to the next level."

Prior to Schofield Stone, Smagorinsky served as COO of Management Leadership for Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization addressing the under-representation of minorities in leadership positions in corporations, entrepreneurial ventures, and nonprofit organizations. He capped a 14-year career at global food and specialty packaging company Sealed Air Corp. as VP, corporate sales and marketing, spearheading worldwide strategic initiatives and the revamping of the company's North American industrial sales organization. He' had previously served as VP of manufacturing for the company's Packaging Products division, and as managing director of its Australia and New Zealand operations.
