CEO Conversations
The second installment of the CEO Conversations series will feature Kathy Walters, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Syracuse University, and retired President, Consumer Products Group, Georgia-Pacific.

Walters served as executive vice president of Georgia-Pacific LLC and group president of its consumer products group from 2007-2019, and previously held other executive positions at the company. Prior to joining GP in 2004, Walters held a number of key leadership positions in Europe and the United States for Scott Paper Co. and Kimberly-Clark Corp. and was CEO of SAPPI Fine Paper North America.

From the Daily Orange, Syracuse’s independent, student-run newspaper:
Walters said she has a strong belief in entrepreneurship and innovation. It’s something that was shaped by her father, a patent attorney, who taught Walters how to search patents. Every business she has ever run has benefitted from these qualities, she said.

Syracuse University has a legacy of entrepreneurship, Walters said. The first female chair of the Board of Trustees, who just sees herself as the chair, said the university has a list of ‘firsts’ that it has never taken credit for.

“If you think of all the firsts, you say, ‘well boy, wasn’t that entrepreneurial?’”
