Jones to Retire From Cummins; Boerger Named Successor

Cummins Inc. Vice President Jeff Jones will complete a 37-year career with the independent engine maker, retiring at midyear, the company said May 8.

The Columbus, Indiana, manufacturer said Amy Boerger, a 30-year Cummins veteran, will succeed Jones. She will be responsible for national accounts, field sales and support for on- and off-highway OEM business. Boerger currently is general manager of field sales and support.

The company also moved Lori Thompson to vice president of engine business marketing. She has been VP for the truck and bus engine business.

Jones, who works on the North American engine business and marketing communications, was a fixture at the Mid-America Trucking Show, the American Truck Dealers and other industry events. He came to Cummins from General Motors in 1977.

"Jeff has had a tremendous impact throughout his career on countless Cummins customers, employees and the North American truck industry as a whole," said Rich Freeland, president of the engine business.
