A graduate of Villanova University and the General Management Program at Harvard Business school, Peter Harding brings more than 25 years of paper industry experience to Lindenmeyr.
Peter began his career with Champion International in 1991, supplying paper to publishers and catalog companies in the Northeast. In 1996, Peter was named Director of Champion’s newly formed Hewlett Packard Division and grew the business across North America, Europe, and South America.
Peter joined Weyerhaeuser Corp. in 2001 as Vice President of Business Papers after the sale of Champion to International Paper. In 2006, Domtar acquired Weyerhaeuser’s paper assets to create the largest producer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America.
In 2011 Peter took on the responsibility of running Domtar’s pulp business before leaving to run AT Clayton in October 2012.
In November 2013, Peter sold AT Clayton to Central National Gottesman and ran the business inside of CNG until the integration of AT Clayton and Lindenmeyr Central in January 2017. He became president of Lindenmeyr Central at that time and in 2018 took on the additional responsibility of running the book and specialty business under the Lindenmeyr Publications Group.
