“The board has complete confidence that Mr. Allen is the person who can continue this rapid restructuring and return PaperlinX to profitability in the shortest possible time,” stated Michael Barker, Chairman of PaperlinX. “Since Mr. Allen’s appointment as the Interim Chief Executive Officer, we have identified and are implementing A$15 million of cost saving initiatives.”

The PaperlinX board also announced Joost Smallenbroek has been promoted to the position of Chief Financial Officer. A resident of The Netherlands, he joined PaperlinX in 2004 and is currently Corporate Finance Director for PaperlinX Europe, leading Treasury, Tax and M&A functions in that area.
