Ty R. Silberhorn

Chief Executive Officer

Ty was named Apogee’s Chief Executive Officer and a member of the company’s board of directors in January 2021. 

Ty joined Apogee following over 20 years at 3M where he built a track record of success, leading change, driving growth, and strengthening the operational performance of several global business units. His most recent role was Senior Vice President of Transformation, Technologies and Services, where he worked to reshape 3M’s efforts in process and digital transformation to further enable growth and productivity. Prior to this position, he held several global business unit leadership roles, serving as Vice President and General Manager for divisions within three of 3M’s business groups, including Safety & Industrial, Transportation & Electronics, and Consumer. Earlier in his career, he served in a variety of roles in sales, marketing, and management, including Six Sigma business group director.

Ty’s experience outside of 3M includes running his own startup eCommerce company and working at Ashland, Inc. He earned an MBA from the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management and a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. 

He is an active volunteer in his community and a member of several alumni and charitable organizations. 

As a lifelong fan of Detroit’s professional sports teams, I am thrilled that Apogee’s Tubelite and Linetec businesses made such significant contributions to the construction of Little Caesar’s Arena, home to the Pistons and Red Wings. Completed in 2017, the arena features Tubelite’s curtainwall, storefront and entrance systems on all facades of the building. These aluminum systems were finished in four painted colors and clear anodize provided by Linetec, including a custom Detroit Red Wings paint color. The construction of Little Caesars arena brought together all four of Detroit’s major professional sports teams into one urban core, all within walking distance of each other.
