Mac Papers has announced Craig Boortz as the new vice president and regional manager, effective January 1. In this role, Boortz will oversee 10 of the 22 Mac Papers branch locations throughout six states across the Southeast U.S. He succeeds Steve Bethea, who is retiring after more than 42 years with the company.
Boortz will be responsible for overseeing and growing the company’s business across Greenville, S.C., Jacksonville and Tallahassee, Fla., Mobile, Montgomery and Birmingham, AL, Jackson, MS, Chattanooga and Memphis, TN, and Little Rock, AR. He joins Dave Milleman, who oversees the other 12 branch locations. Boortz will be based at Mac Papers’ Headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla., and will report to David McGehee, president.
“Since 1995, Craig has served Mac Papers in key leadership positions,” said Sutton McGehee, chairman and CEO of Mac Papers. “His management, technical and field experience will be invaluable to the company as we work towards achieving innovation and operational excellence for our customers.”
As General Manager in Greenville, S.C., Boortz also oversaw AllSquare Digital Solutions, a Greenville-based wide format equipment and supplies distribution company owned by Mac Papers. This provided Boortz with intimate knowledge of wide format printing, a core business for Mac Papers, along with paper and packaging solutions.
Having spent his entire career with Mac Papers, Boortz brings more than 21 years of experience across the paper, packaging and wide format industries. He joined Mac Papers in 1992, where he first served as a sales representative in Tampa, Fla. He was appointed General Manager for the company’s Greensboro, N.C., branch in 1995 before becoming General Manager for the Greenville branch in 1997.
Craig is a graduate of the University of Florida with a BSBA in Finance. He also earned his MBA from the University of Tampa.
David McGehee, Jr., has been named Boortz’s successor as the new General Manager in Greenville.
