COLUMBUS, Ind. – Cummins announced today that Pamela Carter, distribution business president, is retiring on April 1, 2015.
Carter was the first woman to lead one of the company’s four main business units and became Indiana’s first African-American woman attorney general. Prior to her role as distribution business president commencing in 2007, she was vice-president, general counsel and corporate secretary.
“Pamela is a uniquely talented individual, who joined us as a skilled lawyer and very quickly mastered the business side, becoming one of our top business leaders,” said Tom Linebarger, chairman and CEO, Cummins. “She is a leader in every sense of the word who helped grow our business across the globe, strengthened our communities and made those around her better. She will truly be missed.”
The company says Carter’s impact has helped the company expand operations all the way to Africa and last year she oversaw one of the largest acquisitions in Cummins’ history when it acquired its formerly independent distributors in North America.
“My time at Cummins has been extremely rewarding,” Carter said. “Doing good at our company means more than making money. Business success is part of it, but there is also a rich tradition of building stronger communities to ultimately build stronger markets for our products. I’ve seen how powerful that combination can be.”
Cummins will announce Carter’s successor in the coming weeks.
