A new manager will be at the helm of Domtar’s pulp mill in Dryden.

Effective Aug.1, Marie Cyr will succeed Jim Blight who is retiring.

The 24-year Domtar employee arrives in northwestern Ontario from Windsor, Que. where she was the Windsor mill’s pulp mill manager and superintendent, responsible for that mill’s manufacturing operations and strategy development.

She joined that operation back in 1995 as a maintenance engineer and project manager.

Cyr is described in a June 11 news release as a “inspirational leader” with a growth mindset and a strong commitment to continuous improvement.

“She also has a unique ability to quickly bring teams together and unify them toward accomplishing an objective,” according to a corporate statement. “We are confident her leadership will help the Dryden Mill continue to be successful." 

The 300-employee Dryden mill produces a bleached softwood kraft pulp, most of which is shipped to manufacturers of paper towels, bath and facial tissue, or shipped to other Domtar mills to make a variety of specialty papers.
