Paper360 - May/June 2017 - 21

FOR SERVICE LEADERSHIP:
HERMAN L. JOACHIM
DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
TOM RODENCAL,
TOM RODENCAL & ASSOC.
As a volunteer leader, Tom Rodencal has
shown a talent for program planning that truly
benefits participants and the industry. In recognition of his tireless contributions, Rodencal
has been named winner of the Herman L.
Joachim Distinguished Service Award. The
HLJDSA was established to recognize an individual for voluntary leadership and support,
including contributions that have significantly
and demonstrably advanced the mission and
vision of the association.
"Tom's dedication and service to TAPPI
have made him an invaluable asset," said Larry
N. Montague, TAPPI president and CEO. "His
contributions to the association have resulted
in significant improvements to conferences,
divisions, and committees that will last for
generations to come."
Rodencal is president of Tom Rodencal &
Associates, an industry consulting firm. He
began his participation with TAPPI in 1980 as
a speaker at the Papermakers Conference. He
has been a part of organizing TAPPI conference
committees for more than 20 years and has
served as conference chair for several high-level
events. In 2001, Rodencal proposed a union
between individual conferences that led to the
formation of PaperCon, the world's largest technical conference for the paper and packaging
industry. His idea became reality in 2008, and
in that year he was conference chairman.
Rodencal also serves as an historian, and
spearheaded the effort to reinstate the TAPPI
Information Resource Library, which was officially reestablished in 2016. Among his many
prizes and contributions, Rodencal has been
awarded the Paper and Board Leadership and
Service Award and Oscar May Prize, and the
Technical Award and Harris O. Ware Prize. He
has been a TAPPI Fellow since 2009 and served
as a member of the TAPPI Board of Directors
from 2009-2011.

FOR LOCAL SECTION SERVICE:
PAUL MAGNABOSCO
OUTSTANDING LOCAL
SECTION MEMBER AWARD
GLENN HANSON,
INDUSTRIAL KILN & DRYER GROUP
Created to recognize those whose exceptional service has resulted in significant and
measurable benefits to TAPPI Local Sections,
the Paul W. Magnabosco Outstanding Local
Section Member Award recognizes remarkable leadership and service to "one or more"
TAPPI Local Sections. This year's recipient,
Glenn Hanson, has given new meaning to the
phrase "or more."
Hanson has been a member of 10 different
TAPPI Local Sections since 1997, serving in a
number of capacities such as executive member, secretary, treasurer, vice chair, chair,
past chair, and Local Section Officers Team.
An active membership advocate for more
than two decades, Hanson's recent leadership of the 2015 Gulf Coast TAPPI meeting drew attendees from the southern US,
Washington and Wisconsin, as well as the
UK and Australia-the largest number of
attendees in several years. 
Hanson works in technical sales for the
Industrial Kiln & Dryer Group, providing
aftermarket services on rotary equipment in
pyro and grinding applications across North
America. He has worked more than 20 years
with a focus on lime recovery kiln systems in
kraft pulp mills, is co-holder of a US Patent,
and continues R&D work on lime recovery
kiln applications.
In addition to his Local Section
service, Hanson has developed
and presented more than 50
Lime Recovery Kiln Process and
Operations Seminars. He has also
authored and co-authored numerous
papers and presentations for TAPPI
technical meetings and conferences,
including the International Chemical
Recovery Conference. Hanson has
been a TAPPI member since 1991.

FOR BUSINESS LEADERSHIP:
TAPPI/PIMA
EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR
MARK KOWLZAN, PACKAGING
CORPORATION OF AMERICA
This honor is presented to senior-level
executives in the pulp, paper, or converting
industries for excellence in management and
outstanding contributions to the industry
as a whole. Under the leadership of 2017
Executive of the Year Mark Kowlzan, PCA
has grown larger and stronger, noted the 2017
Nominating Committee. The committee also
recognized PCA's valuable support of industry student activities (such as Maine Paper
Days and the TAPPI Student Summit), which
has increased during Kowlzan's time as CEO.
Kowlzan has served as PCA's chairman
since January 2016, and as chief executive
officer and director since July 2010. From
1998-2010, Kowlzan led the company's containerboard mill system; from 1996-1998,
he served in various senior mill-related
operating positions with PCA and Tenneco
Packaging, including as manager of the
Counce linerboard mill. Prior to joining
Tenneco Packaging, Kowlzan spent 15 years
at International Paper, where he held a series
of operational and managerial positions.
Key to PCA's recent growth have been
the 2013 acquisition of Boise Inc. and the
2016 acquisition of independent corrugated
products producer TimBar Corporation;
both were successfully accomplished during Kowlzan's tenure as CEO.
