New York, N.Y., May 1, 2008 – The United States Council for International Business (USCIB), which represents America’s top global companies, has announced that Inge G. Thulin, executive vice president for international operations with 3M, has been elected a vice chair of the organization.

“Inge Thulin brings considerable international experience and perspective to USCIB,” said USCIB President Peter M. Robinson. “His participation as a USCIB vice chair demonstrates 3M’s leadership in the global marketplace and reconfirms the company’s valuable role as a cornerstone of support for USCIB in the Midwest region.”

Mr. Thulin, a native of Sweden who joined 3M in 1979, succeeds Ronald Baukol, 3M’s former executive vice president of international operations and a member of the company’s board of directors, who was in turn elected a senior trustee of USCIB.

“I’m delighted to take on the challenge of helping develop USCIB’s visibility and effectiveness on the global stage,” commented Mr. Thulin. “This is an organization that any company operating in multiple regions of the world ought to participate in. With a unique network, USCIB enables companies to play a direct role in key international organizations that help set the rules of the road for commerce worldwide.”

With an MBA degree from Gothenburg University, Sweden, Mr. Thulin has served in diverse marketing, line management and operational capacities in Sweden, Western Europe, Russia, the Asia-Pacific region and at 3M headquarters in Saint Paul, Minn. He was named to his current position with the company in 2003. Mr. Thulin is a director of the board of the Toro Company.

USCIB promotes an open system of global commerce in which business can flourish and contribute to economic growth, human welfare and protection of the environment.
