Premier Paper is being run by acting managing director (md) Johan de Boer, following the sudden departure of its md Graham Griffiths, after less than two years. Griffiths, who hopes to stay in the paper trade, is believed to have had a major disagreement with his boss, MAP Merchant Group president Karl-Johan Lindborg, who has publicly thanked Griffiths for steering Premier through "a difficult period." De Boer is MAP's vice president for central, west and southern Europe. Premier Paper is a division of MAP Merchant Group.
