Creation Date



Greg Radney graduated from the University of Maine in 1977 with a BS in Pulp and Paper Technology and in 1978 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. He grew up in the Pulp & Paper Industry traveling to various locations (Maine, Nova Scotia, New York, Pennsylvania) while his father built Pulp Mills for Scott Paper.

Greg started his career with the Foxboro Company and after three years joined Valmet, a company devoted to Pulp & Paper, for the startup of the Madison Paper Pressurized Groundwood Plant & PM3 in 1981. Over the following thirty-six years he held various positions from Sales Manager and Vice President to Corporate Account Manager for International Paper globally.

Greg served as a Vice President on the Board of Directors for the UMaine Pulp and Paper Foundation between 2011 and 2017, and Chair of the Nominating Committee before retiring. He established the Greg & Patty Radney Scholarship in 2017. In doing so, he stated, “It is my sincere pleasure to establish this scholarship to make it possible for others find their way to the Pulp and Paper Industry. If it were not for this program, the University, and its professors, I would not be where I am today. It has been an honor to serve the UMaine Pulp and Paper Foundation in various capacities including to help coordinate TREE trips to Finland & Sweden. The UMaine Pulp and Paper Foundation is one of a kind, developing engineers and professionals to meet future challenges.”
