Jerry Marterer is a 1976 Master of Business Administration
graduate of Gannon University. He received his undergraduate degree
in economics and accounting from Clarion State University.
Marterer began his career at Hammermill Paper Co. in Erie and
then transitioned into International Paper Co. Marterer served
first with the executive leadership team and then as president of
IP Asia, spending four years in Hong Kong. In 2002, he joined
Arizona Chemical as president and CEO until his retirement in 2008.
He remains on the Board of Arizona Chemical as chairman.
Jerry Marterer and his wife are a dynamic couple who have
traveled and lived throughout the world. They divide their time
between Charleston, S.C., and Paris, France.
The Marterers began collecting art around 1968 to decorate their
apartment walls and were quickly attracted to the land and
seascapes that could be found in nearby villages and barns. The
couple soon gravitated toward the bright colors of the mid-century
modern school and acquired original signed works on paper from
Bracque, Chagal, Miro, Dali, and other contemporaries. When Jerry
Marterer retired, the couple spent more time at their home in Paris
and began adding oil paintings from the 1930-1960
Post-Impressionism era to their growing collection.
