ATLANTA, Feb. 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia-Pacific announced today that it has named Chris Warburton as Chief Customer Officer for the Consumer Products Group. In this role, Warburton will lead the organization's combined sales force for the company's retail and away from home (GP PRO) businesses.

"At Georgia-Pacific, we strive every day to increase the value and mutual benefit we create with our partners, and to focus talent and resources on opportunities that accelerate our customers' success," said David Duncan, executive vice president for Georgia-Pacific's Consumer Products Group.

"She is strategic, well-respected, and focused on customized solutions to meet customer needs. I am confident that under her leadership, the GP PRO sales organization will optimize the sales journey to create even stronger partnerships with our customers."
