COLUMBUS, Ind. – A long-time executive is retiring from Cummins Inc., and two more company veterans have earned promotions.
Jeff Jones, vice-president of North American engine business and marketing communications will work his last day on June 30.
He originally joined the company in 1977 as a regional service manager, after working as an application engineer at General Motors.
“While we are excited for Jeff as he heads toward a well-deserved retirement, the company will miss his leadership. Jeff has had a tremendous impact throughout his career on countless Cummins customers, employees and the North American truck industry as a whole,” said Rich Freeland, Cummins Inc.’s vice-president and engine business president. “
“I am extremely grateful to have spent 37 years with this great company, and am honored to have helped Cummins achieve its leading position in North America,” Jones said. “More than anything else, I will miss working with my industry colleagues and customers, as well as the many talented employees at Cummins.”
Amy Boerger has been named to succeed Jones and will take over leadership of the engine business group. She will be responsible for national accounts, field sales and support and the North American on-and-off-highway OEM business. Another veteran of the company, Boerger has been with Cummins since 1984, and before her promotion, her most recent title was general manager, field sales and support.
Lori Thompson who most recently held the title of vice-president, truck and bus engine business, has also been given a new role: vice-president of engine business marketing. Thompson will have responsibility for global marketing, marketing communications and emerging-growth opportunities. She has been with Cummins since 1979.
“I have every confidence that Amy and Lori are ready to take on these new leadership roles. They both bring significant experience in sales and marketing at Cummins, and will ensure a seamless transition for our customers and other stakeholders,” Jones said.
