The effects of the recession on tissue demand despite population growth can be partially explained by young adults continuing to live at home but the increase in nominal wages promises continued growth over the next five years. This is what Roman Hohol, VP of Custom Research at Numera, explored in his recent presentation at International Pulp Week.
Our recent expansion led us to hire three new analysts, all of whom share a passion for economics and data-driven solutions. Pierce Mullin graduated from University College London with a MSc in Economics (Distinction); François Chastanet comes to us from HEC Paris by way of Brazil and obtained an MBA from HEC Montreal; Demetra Papanagiotou obtained her first degree in Financial Management & Banking from the University of Piraeus in Greece and furthered her education at Concordia in Montreal, graduating with a Master’s in Economics. All of them add tremendous value to our international team and we are excited to have them. Their more extensive biographies will be featured on our Team page at a later date.
