Jaclyn Epstein, Mica Corporation's Sales & Marketing Strategy Manager, has been selected as one of seven TAPPI Young Professionals (YPs) of the Year. The award is presented to YPs under the age of 35 in the paper, packaging, tissue and related industries who have made a significant contribution in the areas of leadership, community service, problem-solving, and volunteer work within TAPPI.
Epstein has been a member of TAPPI since 2016 when she joined Mica. In 2017, she was selected by her peers as Director of Communications for the TAPPI YP division, where she has been working with fellow executive board members to connect YP's from across the industry by creating communications tools and channels, building awareness for the division, and promoting member stories.
“I’m incredibly proud to be recognized by TAPPI, an organization that has meant so much to Mica over the years. I’m excited to continue my work with the TAPPI YP Division, and help shine the spotlight on young professionals who are driving innovation and progress throughout our industry,” Epstein said.
Awardees receive complimentary registration to a TAPPI conference of their choice, and one full year of TAPPI membership. Epstein will be recognized and presented with an engraved obelisk noting the achievement at TAPPI's PaperCon in April.
