Mark Levett, Vice President of Corporate Responsibility and CEO of the Cummins Foundation, will retire Nov. 30 after serving in a variety of key leadership positions during his 42 years with the company.
After joining Cummins as an entry level analyst in 1973, Levett used his business expertise, his strong work ethic and his skills to quickly rise through the company and by 1981, Levett had already become a Vice President with Cummins.
“It’s with tremendous appreciation, and some sadness, too, that we announce today that Mark is retiring,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger and President and Chief Operating Officer Rich Freeland said in a joint statement. “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.”
During his time at Cummins, he helped expand the company’s customer base and improve many of the successful joint venture agreements that Cummins benefits from today. With his leadership, the business grew from a $500 million operation into a $3 billion industry leader, developing critical products as the QSK95, the largest high-speed diesel engine the company has ever built.
In 2013, Mark became the leader of Corporate Responsibility, expanding the company’s community service footprint globally and focusing on the distinct needs of the communities Cummins serves.
Levett plans to stay active in community service work after he retires, as President of the Board of Trustees at his alma mater, Hanover College in Hanover, Indiana (USA).
