Among changes that followed Bowater Inc.'s acquisition of Avenor Inc. was a reorganization of the Newsprint and Directory Division, under its president, Arthur D. Fuller.

R. DONALD NEWMAN, who joined Bowater in 1987 and most recently served as vice president and resident manager of its Calhoun, Tenn., newsprint mill, was named Canadian newsprint operations vice president, based in Montreal. Avenor operations technology vice president EDWARD J. BROADHURST retains that title with Bowater's Canadian newsprint operations. Division sales vice president C. RANDY ELLINGTON's responsibilities now extend to all North American sales, while international sales vice president WILLIAM C. MORRIS heads sales outside North America, including export sales of Bowater-Halla Paper Co., Korea. Avenor senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, MARC REGNIER, becomes vice president and general counsel at Bowater's Canadian newsprint operations.

Bowater also appointed two senior corporate managers. Bowater vice president and treasurer JAMES H. DORTON was named corporate development and strategy vice president, a new position in which he directs major acquisitions and divestitures, evaluates investment opportunities, organizes and supports corporate strategic planning and supports corporate and divisional management on specific taskforce assignments. Moving into Dorton's former job is mechanical engineer and financial analyst WILLIAM G. HARVEY, who was vice president and treasurer at Avenor.


FRANK C. (KIM) BREESE was named executive vice president, U.S. operations, at Donohue Inc., Montreal. The appointment followed Donohue's incorporation of a new subsidiary in the United States, Donohue Industries Inc., which owns and operates the two newsprint and specialty papers mills and three paper recycling and sorting facilities in Texas that Donohue acquired in spring from Champion International.

Most recently consulting for the newsprint and newspaper industries, Breese was president and CEO of Newsprint South Inc. from 1992 to 1995, after holding executive positions with Dow Jones & Co. for more than 20 years.


Six executives were promoted to and a seventh hired as senior vice president at Goss Graphic Systems, Westmont, Ill., which also filled three new vice president positions.

The six promoted executives and their areas of responsibility are: RANDALL THOMAS, Europe; RICHARD SUTIS, Asia-Pacific; GEORGE MISHOS, Latin America: RICK SURKAMER, global marketing; JACK MERRYMAN, general counsel and corporate secretary; and ALAN SHENG, chief technology officer.

ALEX BRNILOVICH was hired a senior vice president, North America, in charge of sales, marketing, project management, engineering, service and all U.S. manufacturing. He joined Goss from Asea Brown Boveri, where he most recently served as president of ABB Power Generation, which designs and manufactures industrial power plants. Brnilovich worked in sales, engineering, project management and general management at five ABB businesses since joining the company in 1985.
