Resolute Announces New Board Nominees

MONTREAL, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Resolute Forest Products Inc. (NYSE: RFP) (TSX: RFP) announced today that the board of directors had nominated Michel P. Desbiens and Jennifer C. Dolan to stand for election as new board members.  Mr. Desbiens and Ms. Dolan will join seven other current members of the board standing for re-election at Resolute's upcoming annual meeting of stockholders on May 16, 2013.  Richard B. Evans, currently the Company's non-executive chairman, has determined that he would retire, and would not stand for re-election.  The board has recommended Bradley P. Martin, a current member, to serve as Resolute's new [non-executive] chairman, and Alain Rhéaume, also a current member, as lead director.

Mr. Desbiens is a forest products industry veteran and an accomplished business leader.  He has been an independent consultant since 2000, advising a number of clients in the forest products industry, during which time he served briefly as Quebecor World Inc.'s chief executive officer (international) and chief executive officer for part of 2002 and 2003.  He had been president and chief executive officer of Donohue Inc. since 1994 when it was acquired by Abitibi-Consolidated Inc. (a predecessor entity of Resolute) in 2000, after which he served briefly as its chairman and a special advisor.  Before then, he held a number of executive positions with Donohue Inc., Domtar Inc., Chapelle d'Arblay paper mill and Abitibi-Price Inc. (a predecessor entity of Resolute).  Mr. Desbiens is a mechanical engineer.  He currently serves on the board of Rogers Sugar Inc.

Ms. Dolan retired from The New York Times Company in 2012 after a 33-year career, the last ten of which she spent as vice president of forest products, where she managed paper procurement and oversaw its equity investments in two paper mills, including as a member of the board of Donohue Malbaie Inc., a joint venture with the Company.  Before then, she held a number of executive and senior finance roles.  Ms. Dolan is a certified public accountant, and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
