An interview with Rick Willet Jr., president and chief executive officer (CEO) of NewPage Corp., is presented. When asked what he has learned in past jobs that will help him succeed, he explains that being a chemical engineer better suits him in the industry than others he has worked with. He believes that the recovery from the recession of the coated paper industry may take longer but from all indications that has come out from the market the business will recover and NewPage can be quite healthy at a smaller level.
