CEO, 3M
Most Admired Top 50 rank: 17


Who he admires: Nolan Archibald, Black & Decker

"In many respects he single-handedly recreated Black & Decker. Nolan is very tough, but I've always seen him try to do what's right."

Company he admires: UPS

"I've done business with them since I was a young man. I've never found any change [for the negative] in UPS. They're reliable, they're dependable, and they try to do what's right. They treat their customers well. They give great service and it's consistent."

NEXT: Chew Choon Seng
