Cummins Sets Executive Changes to Engine Business

Cummins Inc. on Friday announced the appointment of two longtime leaders of its engine unit to run key business operations within that division.

Ed Pence — who has been general manager of Cummins’ heavy-duty engine business since 2005 — will lead Cummins’ high horsepower business, which includes mining, marine, oil and gas, rail and locomotive, power generation and defense units.

Dave Crompton — who has been with the company for 25 years — will lead the heavy-duty, midrange and light-duty worldwide product businesses, which are being combined into a single global operating entity within the engine business.

Pence will replace Mark Levett, who will take on a new role as vice president of corporate responsibility and community relations and CEO of the Cummins Foundation.

Pence joined Cummins in 1981 and has held a variety of key positions with Cummins, working in on- and off-Highway original equipment manufacturers and customers.

In his seven years as general manager for midrange, Crompton led the business through the highest investment cycle in new products and capacity expansion and established new business segments and several new partnerships for Cummins.
