David Dillon, retired chairman and chief executive officer of The Kroger Co., has been elected to the board of directors at St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M.
Dillon’s strategic leadership in the consumer products business includes serving as Kroger’s CEO from 2003 through 2013, and chairman of the board from 2004 to 2014. Prior to that, he held a variety of executive positions including COO and executive vice president. He also served in numerous leadership roles at the Dillon Companies Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Mr. Dillon to our board,” said Inge Thulin, 3M chairman, president and CEO. “As the former leader of one of the world’s largest retailers, Dillon brings vast experience and a strong understanding of the customer’s point of view and exceptional knowledge of complex operations.”
3M manufactures a host of products across numerous industries, but is perhaps best known to consumers for Scotch brand tape and Post-it notes.
