Cummins’ Jeff Jones announces retirement

May 8, 2014

Jeff Jones, vice president-North American Engine Business and marketing communications, announced his retirement from Cummins, effective June 30, 2014.

“While we are excited for Jeff as he heads toward a well-deserved retirement, the company will miss his leadership,” said Rich Freeland, president - Engine Business, and vice president - Cummins Inc. “Jeff has had a tremendous impact throughout his career on countless Cummins customers, employees and the North American truck industry as a whole.”

Jones joined Cummins in 1977 as a regional service manager, after beginning his career as an application engineer at General Motors. From early in his Cummins career, Jones worked in customer-facing roles, including service, field sales and support, OEM account management, market communications and national accounts.

"I am extremely grateful to have spent 37 years with this great company, and am honored to have helped Cummins achieve its leading position in North America," Jones said. "More than anything else, I will miss working with my industry colleagues and customers, as well as the many talented employees at Cummins."

Amy Boerger will succeed Jones. In her new role, Boerger will be responsible for national accounts, field sales and support and the North American on- and off-highway OEM business.

Boerger joined Cummins in 1984 after graduating from Valparaiso University with a degree in mechanical engineering. During her 30-year career, she has held roles in automotive marketing, field sales and service, OEM account management and Cummins Emission Solutions aftermarket business. Boerger most recently served as General Manager - Field Sales and Support.

Lori Thompson will assume a new position as vice president - Engine Business marketing, and will have responsibility for global marketing, marketing communications and emerging-growth opportunities. Her most recent position was vice president - truck and bus engine business. She joined Cummins in 1979 as a planning specialist, and has held roles in marketing, logistics, plant management, quality, parts and Cummins ReCon business.

“I have every confidence that Amy and Lori are ready to take on these new leadership roles. They both bring significant experience in sales and marketing at Cummins, and will ensure a seamless transition for our customers and other stakeholders,” Jones said.
