IKONICS Corp., parent company of Duluth, Minnesota-based image transfer products company IKONICS Imaging, announces that Glenn Sandgren is the company’s new CEO. Sandgren succeeds William C. Ulland, who officially retired as president and CEO on February 10, 2020.

“I am excited that Glenn will become our company’s next CEO,” says Ulland. “Glenn has a track record of building great teams and growing business. I am incredibly excited to watch Glenn lead IKONICS into our next era of growth.”

Ulland will continue in his role as chairman of the board. Sandgren will also serve on the company’s board.

“We thank Bill for his exceptional contributions over the course of his 19-year career as the CEO and president of IKONICS and his 43 years as chairman of the board. The company has grown and evolved under his leadership,” says Sandgren. “I am honored to lead this company into the future.”

Prior to joining IKONICS, Sandgren was president of Pallidus. In this role, he oversaw the expansion of the silicon carbide crystal production facility and drove the technology and business development. Before that, Sandgren served as the vice president of silicon carbide products for Melior Innovations; vice president and business unit manager for Polysciences Inc.; and held senior positions with Owens Corning and GE Plastics.

Sandgren’s 30 years of experience leading materials innovation and growth organizations in key markets make him ideally suited to IKONICS, according to the company. He has a mechanical engineering degree from Purdue, and an MBA from Central Michigan University.
