The president and CEO of Wisconsin Rapids' largest employer has been named executive of the year by an international pulp and paper industry association, the organization announced Thursday.

George Martin of Miamisburg, Ohio-based papermaker NewPage Corp. has been named winner of the 2013 Paper Industry Management Association Executive of the Year Award, according to a news release from TAPPI, formerly the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry and PIMA's new parent organization. The award is PIMA's highest honor and recognizes senior-level executives in the pulp, paper or converting industries for excellence in management and outstanding contributions to the industry as a whole.

Martin has shown "strong leadership skills and vision that are absolutely critical for success in today's global pulp and paper business," said TAPPI President and CEO Larry Montague in the news release. The Ohio-based papermaker recently emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and employs about 1,700 people in central Wisconsin at facilities in Wisconsin Rapids, Biron and Stevens Point.
