Cascades Inc. Tissue Group Announces Top Leadership Change

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Cascades Inc. has announced leadership change for its Tissue Group. The announcement was made by Mario Plourde, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cascades. Jean-David Tardiff will be the new President and Chief Operating Officer. He will replace Jean Jobin.

Mario Plourde tanked the outgoing President on behalf of all Cascaders for his outstanding years of service with the company. Further, he described Jean-David Tardiff as the person best prepared and best equipped to take on the challenge of being the successor of Jean Jobin. Meantime, Jobin, in a statement, noted that he has decided to leave Cascades in order to devote his time to personal projects. He expressed the hope that the highly competent and capable Cascades team will take the success further forward.

Mr.Tardiff joined Cascades in 1997. Since then, he has worked for each of the company’s three groups. Within the Tissue Group, he was Vice-President, Consumer Products from 2013 to 2017. Since then, he has been serving as the Vice-President, Operations for Cascades Containerboard Packaging.

Assuming the new role, Jean-David Tardiff stated that he is confident of many opportunities for the company in future, despite today’s challenges, while referring to definitive closures of two tissue paper machines located in Whitby and Scarborough in Ontario announced last week. The company is yet to reach its full potential, he added.
