The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) announced that Jon Lindekugel, senior vice president, supply chain, 3M, has been named to the NAM Board of Directors. Lindekugel will join the NAM Board to advance a manufacturing policy agenda that promotes growth and prosperity for all Americans.

Founded in 1895, the NAM, guided by its Board of Directors, is the largest industrial trade association in the United States with 14,000 members and is the nation’s most influential advocate for manufacturing. The NAM’s membership includes some of the world’s most iconic brands and many of the small manufacturers that power the U.S. economy. More than 90 percent of our members are small and medium-sized businesses.

The NAM is at the forefront of every important policy debate for manufacturers. Executives on the NAM Board, which comprises leaders representing companies of all sizes in every industrial sector, are the driving force behind the NAM’s advocacy efforts.

“I am honored to be a part of the NAM Board and continue to advocate policies that will help ensure our continued growth and success as manufacturers,” said Lindekugel. “Current policies affect more than 12 million men and women employed in manufacturing. I look forward to working with the NAM and the manufacturing community to strengthen our economy and create more opportunities for working families.”

“Jon is a recognized and respected leader in our industry, and he will bring valuable insights to the NAM Board of Directors,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Jon knows what it takes to succeed in a changing global economy and understands the kinds of solutions—like infrastructure investment, workforce development, immigration reform, trade expansion and regulatory relief—that we need to see from our elected leaders. With his voice and leadership, the NAM will be an even more effective advocate for our more than 12 million men and women who make things in America and for the industry that is the backbone of our exceptional country.”
