A former 3M Company executive has been named as the general manager of Arctic Cat’s parts, garments and accessories business.
Mary Ellen Walker will lead the Minnesota manufacturer’s parts department, which nets more than $100 million annually in sales and represents approximately 13 percent of the company’s net sales, Arctic Cat reported in a press release.
Walker was most recently general manager of 3M’s Building Safety Solutions Division, where she grew a portfolio of businesses’ revenues through increased market penetration, overseas expansion, repositioning key products and launching new products and programs. She also led the growth of 3M’s insulation business for the apparel industry, expanding internationally and entering new markets.
“As general manager of PG&A and companywide sales, Mary Ellen will play a key role in re-invigorating the growth of our business and further leveraging our efficiency,” Arctic Cat CEO Christopher Twomey said in the press release.
