3M ESPE Dental recently announced the appointment of James Ingebrand as the new President and General Manager responsible for the strategic and overall operations of 3M ESPE.

Ingebrand’s appointment tops a 30-year career at 3M, much of it healthcare and dental, allowing for a very quick and easy transition into the new role.

“Jim has a proven track record of business leadership,” said Joaquin Delgado, Executive Vice President of 3M Healthcare Business Group. “Prior to successfully leading 3M Drug Delivery Systems Division, Jim led our core dental business in 3M ESPE. Jim is very familiar with key players in the dental industry and will be a great leader for this business.”

Ingebrand’s previous positions at 3M include President and General Manager of 3M Drug Delivery Systems, Global Business Director for 3M ESPE Dental, and Marketing Director for the 3M Infection Prevention Division.

“When I left the dental group the first time around, it was a bittersweet departure because I had so quickly developed a passion for the oral care industry,” said Ingebrand. “So this really does feel like a homecoming of sorts, and I’m looking forward to leading 3M ESPE during a very exciting time in dentistry.”

In 1984, Ingebrand began his career as a marketing analyst in the Corporate Marketing Research Department. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, as well as a Masters of Business Administration degree, both from the University of Minnesota.
