Mac Papers and Packaging (Jacksonville, Florida), one of the largest paper and packaging distributors in the Southeast United States, has announced the appointment of Charles Paquin as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Prior to joining Mac Papers and Packaging, Paquin served as President and Chief Executive Officer of ModSpace Corporation, a North American leader in turnkey modular space and portable-storage solutions with 80 branch locations throughout Canada and the U.S. During Paquin’s 15-year tenure as CEO, he led the acquisition of General Electric’s modular space division and spearheaded the highly successful sale of ModSpace to its primary competitor, WillScot.
“Charles brings valuable expertise to the role, including deep experience with a complex branch-based distribution business, a strong financial background, and extensive executive leadership experience,” said Stephen Presser, Co-founder and Partner at Monomoy Capital Partners, the private equity firm that acquired Mac Papers and Packaging in March of 2020. “We’re confident that Charles will do a fantastic job leading the company, working closely with the impressive senior leadership team already in place, as they focus on delivering top-notch customer service and strategically growing the business.”
Mac Papers and Packaging President and COO Rick Mitchell, who announced his decision to retire late last year, will remain with the company for an appropriate transition period. “We greatly appreciate Rick’s many contributions, most notably his dedicated leadership through Monomoy’s acquisition of the company, and skillfully steering the ship throughout the challenges presented by the pandemic,” Presser added. “I know the entire Mac Papers and Packaging team joins all of us at Monomoy in wishing Rick the very best in his well-deserved retirement.”
