COLUMBUS, Ind. – Cummins has shaken up its leadership team to build upon the company’s performance.
Rich Freeland, former engine business president for Cummins since 2010 will be assuming the role of president and chief operating officer for the company. He will be reporting directly to Tom Linebarger, the chairman and CEO.
“Rich has a deep understanding of Cummins’ business, people, customers, and markets, which will be invaluable in his new role,” said Linebarger. “As someone who has been with Cummins since 1979 and has successfully led three of our four business units over the years, Rich knows what it takes to be dependable every time for our customers across the globe.”
To fill Freeland’s old position as engine business president is Dave Crompton, who prior to this position was head of heavy duty, medium duty and light duty business.
“During both good and challenging economic times, Dave has successfully developed and led teams that continuously improved the products, processes and services that our customers depend on for their success,” commented Linebarger. “Dave has helped our engine business expand global partnerships, improve quality and navigate through some of the most strategic and economic challenges out company has faced. Dave is an outstanding choice to lead our largest business unit profitably and sustainably into the future.”
