Mr. Garneau was chosen for his leadership, vision, and strategic accomplishments in a survey of investment analysts and portfolio managers who cover the forest products industry. "The competition was close among this year's finalists, but Mr. Garneau undeniably stood out among his peers," said Mark Rushton, Editor, Pulp and Paper International (PPI).

One analyst commented, " Richard Garneau has helped Resolute retake a leadership position in the industry, including the acquisition of Fibrek." Another said, "He has done an excellent job of deleveraging the company despite the challenges in certain markets, specifically newsprint."

Before joining Resolute Forest Products, Mr. Garneau served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Catalyst Paper Corporation from 2007 through 2010. Prior to his tenure at Catalyst, Mr. Garneau was Vice President of Pulp and Paper Operations at Domtar Inc. He also held a variety of roles at Norampac, Copernic.com, Future Electronics, St. Laurent Paperboard, Finlay Forest Industries, and Donohue Inc.

In addition to accepting his award at RISI's North American Forest Products Conference in Boston, Mr. Garneau will join the CEO panel.
