CEPI, the European association representing the forest fibre and paper industry, announces that Jori Ringman has unanimously been appointed by the CEPI Board as successor to Sylvain Lhôte at the helm of the Brussels-based organisation.
Kalle Sundström, CEPI Chairman and CEO of Stora Enso: “In this challenging time, with the sudden and unexpected death of Sylvain Lhôte, I am glad to be able to count on the experience and competence of Jori Ringman to efficiently deliver on what has been prepared by the CEPI team over the last months, and continue to shape the strategic presence of our industry at EU level.”
Note to editor:
Sylvain was the Director General of CEPI since 2016, he brought a strong leadership to the organisation, reforming the way of working, focusing on building efficient working tools and processes, encouraging synergies and increased communication among colleagues and value chain partners. He was instrumental in outlining a strategy for the future of the industry in order to successfully go through major transformations related to tackling climate change and leveraging the potential of the bioeconomy.
Sylvain brought 25 years of government and public affairs expertise, working with leading material technology and manufacturing industries on climate and energy policies, sustainability and industrial affairs, as well as competition and international trade issues.
It is with sadness and silence that we are mourning Sylvain. His sense of humour, charisma, endless creativity, strategic thinking and tenacity in defending his points will be greatly missed. He was married to Florence and the father of two children, Romain and Julie. Our thoughts are with them, their family and loved ones.
Given the exceptional circumstances, Jori Ringman, CEPI’s Deputy Director General, has been appointed as CEPI’s Acting Director General with immediate effect.
