Mike Schultz, managing director of Cloquet’s Sappi mill, was promoted to Sappi North America’s vice president of manufacturing effective Sept. 1, according to a news release.

He was a “natural choice” for the position, said former Sappi Vice President of Manufacturing Mike Haws, who is now stepping into Sappi North America’s President and CEO role.
