Diversified manufacturer 3M Co. said Wednesday it has named George W. Buckley, the chairman and chief executive of boat maker Brunswick Corp., as its new chairman, president and chief executive officer, effective immediately.
Buckley succeeds interim chairman and chief executive Robert S. Morrison, who has led the company since July. Morrison took the interim post after former CEO James McNerney left to become the CEO of Boeing Co.
Buckley has served as chairman and chief executive of Brunswick since June 2000.
Brunswick, the maker of Boston Whaler and other leisure boats, said in a separate statement said it named Dustan E. McCoy as chairman and chief executive to succeed Buckley.
McCoy has served as vice president of Brunswick and president of Brunswick Boat Group since it was formed in 2000. Separately, Brunswick said it elected Lawrence A. Zimmerman, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Xerox Corp., to its board of directors.
