This is misleading at best. Nice guy and has done well for TC, but he was promoted because of who he is married too. If your father in law is the controlling share holder and you are made CEO, you would think it would be part of the story. Sounds like they could have included this in the press release. Either way, congrats to him. Hope he enjoys his retirement. Even though many of my colleagues will have to work a few extra years thanks to his consolidation of the printing sector.
