3M, St. Paul, Minn., appointed Nicholas C. Gangestad to senior vice president and chief financial officer this week. Effective immediately, he replaces David W. Meline, who is departing for another large, publicly traded company.
Gangestad has worked 27 years at 3M in financial leadership positions in the United States, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Canada, most recently as corporate controller and chief accounting officer, working closely with Inge G.
