Cummins names new engine business VP

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Karen Battin, controller for Cummins’ Power Generation Business since 2005, has been promoted to vice-president and controller for the company’s engine business.

Battin replaces Pat Ward, who recently was named Cummins’ chief financial officer.

Battin joined Cummins in 1998 as leader of the corporate accounting policy function and in 2000 became director of corporate accounting and consolidation. In 2004, she assumed additional responsibility for corporate business analysis and planning, and in 2005, she was named controller of the power generation business.

“Karen’s financial expertise, along with the overall Cummins’ business and market knowledge she gained in her investor relations and power generation roles, provides her with the broad background needed for this position,” says Jim Kelly, engine business president. “As our business continues to grow both domestically and in markets around the world, having excellent financial processes in place is critical to our success.”
