VANCOUVER, B.C. — Cummins Westport has named Cummins veteran Robert Brooks as its new vice-president, engineering and technology and chief technical officer.
Brooks was serving as Cummins’ executive director of electronic tools and information products when he got the nod for the new position. He will relocate to Vancouver to help head the development of Cummins Westport spark-ignited engine products while completing the development of new Westport-cycle engine products such as the Cummins Westport ISX-G 400 horsepower natural gas truck engine.
“With less than two years until the first Westport-cycle engines are scheduled for commercial launch, and with an array of other engine lines in progress, Robert’s engineering and management experience abilities will assist us in maintaining our rapid pace of development,” says Guff Muench, president of Cummins Westport.
Brooks has been with Cummins since 1978, taking an active role in developing many of the company’s major engine projects. He has a Masters of Science and a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering, both from the University of Michigan.
