Cummins' president to take on new role

Posted on December 16, 2009

Cummins Inc. said that engine business President Jim Kelly will leave his current role in March 2010 to lead a number of key cross-business strategic projects.

"Earlier this year, Jim expressed his desire to retire and for a smooth leadership transition in the Engine Business.  I am extremely pleased that he has decided to remain with Cummins awhile longer in order to help us tackle some important enterprise-wide initiatives," said Cummins President/COO Tom Linebarger.

Kelly joined Cummins in 1976 and was named to his current position in May 2005. His successor will be named in the near future, according to the company.

Kelly, who has been a Cummins vice president since 1993, has served as plant manager at two of Cummins' highest-profile manufacturing operations — the Jamestown, N.Y., and Columbus, Ind., engine plants — and has held leadership roles in virtually every segment of the engine business.
