A long-time executive at Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will retire in November. Vice President of Corporate Responsibility and Chief Executive Officer of the Cummins Foundation Mark Levett will retire after 42 years with the company.
In a joint statement, Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger and President and Chief Operating Officer Rich Freeland said, "It’s with tremendous appreciation, and some sadness, too, that we announce today that Mark is retiring. Cummins has benefitted greatly from Mark’s business expertise, his strong work ethic and his skills as a great listener and keen observer of people. He has always been the soft-spoken gentleman, treating everyone with dignity and respect. But Mark’s modest nature masks the enormous impact he has had on our company."
Levett has held a variety of leadership positions since joining Cummins in 1973 as an entry level analyst.
Levett will retire on November 30.
