Resolute Forest Products Inc. chief financial officer Remi Lalonde recalls tense times for the company last spring, when the outlook seemed bleak for lumber demand.

“I think that when you look at 2020 and the pandemic-induced challenges that we had, there were some pretty scary moments, especially in March, April and May,” he said in an interview, days before he becomes Resolute’s new chief executive officer next week.
