KapStone CFO, Andrea K. Tarbox, Named Chicago CFO Of The Year

NORTHBROOK, Ill., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrea K. Tarbox, CFO of KapStone Paper and Packaging Corporation (NYSE: KS) ("KapStone") has been awarded 2012 Chicago CFO of the year by the Financial Executives International (FEI) Chicago Chapter. 

Chicago CFO of the Year® Awards are presented to senior financial leaders and recognize exceptional performance of financial professionals in their roles as corporate stewards in five categories: large public company, mid-size public company, large private company, mid-size private company and not-for-profit organizations.  

Tarbox, winner in the mid-size public company category, stated, "I consider this a KapStone win.  I am fortunate to have an extraordinary team who were adventurous enough to join the fledgling company and then to execute brilliantly in their areas of expertise."

Roger Stone, KapStone's Chairman and CEO, commented, "In many ways, Andrea is in a class all by herself.  She joined KapStone when it was in formation and she was our only financial employee.  She quickly recruited and built a talented and effective organization.  As the company grew, she integrated our acquisitions and created a cohesive, committed, and motivated group."

Tarbox joined the company in 2006.  KapStone has since grown from $0 in revenue to its current annual run-rate of well over $1 billion. Tarbox's previous career includes financial positions of increasing responsibility in several global companies including Gartner, British Petroleum and Fortune Brands.  Her career began with Ernst & Young.  Andrea earned a BA in psychology from Connecticut College and an MBA from the University of Rhode Island.
