Last year Dean Kilpatrick and a representative from Keurig Green Mountain spoke with us, and this year we are hoping to bring in speakers from Dow Chemical and 3M. Stay tuned!
In Fall 2015, Dr. John Banovetz, the director of Corporate Strategy at 3M, visited campus and spoke with AIChE! Dr. Banovetz originally joined 3M in 1995 as a research chemist, and was part of 3M’s R&D organization for eight years before leaving to join McKinsey and Company in 2003. During his time at McKinsey, Banovetz worked on both strategy and operational effectiveness projects for a variety of industrial clients. He rejoined 3M as part of the Corporate Strategy team in 2007. Today, he is responsible for the overall corporate strategic planning process for 3M, as well as the implementation of corporate strategic initiatives.
