ATLANTA, GEORGIA, March 26, 2004 –(PRNewswire)-- This Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) event took place on March 26 , 2004 from 11:00-12:30 pm EST. Frank Dottori, President and CEO of Tembec Corporation spoke on How pulp & paper professionals attain successful outcomes.

The lecture focused on how Pulp and Paper professionals can best attain successful outcomes in today's shifting market place and business culture by using Tembec, Inc. as a crucible. Dottori says, “Tembec seeks to create an environment where employees can participate, be creative, be constructively critical, without fear of retaliation by their superiors. In essence, Tembec tries to adhere and share the Vision of “A company of people building their own future" -- with all employees of the company, regardless of position”.

Mr. Dottori graduated from the University of Toronto in 1963 with a BASc in Chemical Engineering and Applied Science. He held a wide variety of positions in both the mining and the pulp and paper industry. In 1973, he and three other executives founded Tembec Inc., reviving a pulp mill in Temiscaming, Quebec that had been shut down, and since 1979 has been Tembec's President and CEO.

As always the Distinguished Lecture Series was offered live in the Institute of Paper Science and Technology’s Kress Auditorium and by live and archived webcast.
