New leadership reaffirms Company’s commitment to South Carolina market

Mac Papers today named John Mark Russell as the new general manager for the Company’s Greenville branch. Russell has relocated from Charlotte, where he most recently served as a Mac Papers account manager, for the position.

In his new role, Russell now oversees all sales, operations and customer relations in Greenville. He is responsible for growing the company’s business in this market and for the diversification of the branch’s sales across the company’s four lines of business: paper and print, packaging, facility supplies and office products. Russell also now has responsibility for All Square Digital Solutions, a Greenville-based wide-format equipment and supplies distribution company owned by Mac Papers.

“Mac Papers consistently rewards employees who take initiative, demonstrate integrity, show a commitment to excellence and live out the company’s values,” said Mac Papers’ Craig Boortz, regional manager. “In his nine years at Mac Papers, John Mark has earned a reputation as a committed team player, a solutions-oriented critical thinker and a respected leader. Our customers and employees in Greenville will both benefit from his leadership.

Russell joined Mac Papers as an account manager in Charlotte in 2007. Since then, he has consistently been named to Mac Papers’ annual sales club, an honor reserved for the company’s highest-performing account managers. Mac Papers also nominated Russell as salesperson of the year five consecutive times, a recognition Russell earned for successfully growing sales each year across all of the Company’s lines of business. Russell graduated from Western Carolina University, with a BSBA in marketing/professional sales in 2001.

Russell succeeds David McGehee, Jr., who is relocating to the company’s headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla., after serving three years in the role.
