Tyrone, PA - April 6, 2020 - American Eagle Paper Mills announced Friday the appointment of Scott Igoe as company President.
“This is a cause for celebration amidst challenging times in the industry, our community, and the world. Scott has dedicated nearly his entire career to American Eagle and its employees. His commitment to excellence and sound judgment have been a driving force behind its success,” said board member Philip Devorris.
Igoe led the effort to restart the idled paper mill, providing direction in the areas of hiring, operator and supervisor training, paper production, fiber and furnish prep, product development and quality, scheduling, and order acknowledgment. In 2007, Igoe was promoted to Executive Vice President of Operations, assuming broader responsibility for all Mill production areas.
Igoe succeeds Devorris in the position. Devorris, who took over as Interim President in December 2018, will remain in his role on the Mill’s Board. Despite a very challenging market over the past few years, the Mill just posted its best quarter since 2016, behind new product introductions such as a wide range of colors and state-of-the-art digital printing grades, all made of premium recycled paper. “This business has tremendous potential, and I’m honored to lead this great team of people, as we continue to set new standards for sustainability in our industry,” said Igoe.
Devorris offered: “I have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to work more closely with AEPM’s many exceptional employees the past couple of years. I am very pleased with the Mill’s steady progress, and with Scott at the helm, I’m tremendously optimistic about our future.”
