3M Renewable Energy Division announced the appointment of Alison Schell as the new energy conservation business director. Schell joined 3M in 1987, as marketing coordinator for the company’s Australia Performance Materials and Solar Film businesses.

She has been a part of the 3M family for more than 20 years and her extensive International, marketing and business leadership expertise will help lead the division into a healthy future,” said Michael Roman, vice president and general manager of 3M Renewable Energy Division.
During Schell’s 15 years at 3M Australia, she held several marketing leadership positions in electrical, telecommunications, chemicals and specialty materials before being appointed to division manager for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&ES) Australia. Next, Schell joined 3M in the United States as international manager of OH&ES, and later spent two years in Six Sigma commercialization leadership in the Safety Security and Protection Services business. Before becoming a member of the Renewable Energy Division, Schell was marketing director for 3M Corporate Strategy and Development.
“3M’s Energy Conservation Business Unit is well positioned for aggressive global growth with a strong portfolio of products positioned at competitive price points, especially in the Asia Pacific Region where we are seeing very strong demand for our energy conservation technologies,” said Schell. “After spending my first week in Asia, I am resolute to 3M’s commitment of global leadership in the window film market, including leveraging our global reach to align supply sources with global market demands.”
