Patolawala has been 3M’s CFO since July 2020 after serving the previous 10 years as CFO at GE Transportation. He was named 3M’s company president in 2023.

“It has been a privilege to work as part of 3M’s leadership team and I am proud of our accomplishments,” said Patolawala said in a 3M news release. “3M is well positioned for success and this is the right time for me to transition to a new opportunity.”

3M said it has initiated a CFO succession process.

Patolawa’s departure announcement comes less than 2 months after 3M CEO Bill Brown began his tenure with the company on May 1.
