“Tony’s more-than three decades of visionary leadership with Cummins have produced a lasting impact on our company and our people, helping lay the strong foundation that supports our future growth and success,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Chair and CEO, Cummins Inc. “Tony has been a leading force in pushing Cummins to be an innovator in our industry, grow and expand our businesses, and evolve the way we work to better serve our customers.”
