We talk to communications and government relations manager for the Domtar Corporation Stefan Nowicki about the cultural changes he experienced when his parents relocated from Austria to America when he was 14. He tells us about the experiences that have informed his work and perspective. We discuss the state of international relations and the ups and downs of global tourism. We also talk about the fate of paper goods and the value of both physical goods and the benefits of digitization.

Stefan was born in Vienna Austria, and moved to  the US in 2000  on a diversity visa when he was 14. He earned a bachelor’s degree in international affairs from Mercer University in 2008, and a master of science degree in Comparative Public Policy from The University of Edinburgh in 2009. Since 2010, Stefan has been a coordinator for government outreach and advocacy efforts, and Environmental Audit Manager, for the Domtar Corporation.
