Cummins executive Levett to retire after 42 years
"It's with tremendous appreciation, and some sadness, too, that we announce today that Mark is retiring," Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said. "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.”
After joining Cummins in 1973 as an entry-level analyst, Levett used his business expertise to quickly rise through the company.
"He has always been the soft-spoken gentleman, treating everyone with dignity and respect," Linebarger said. "But Mark's modest nature masks the enormous impact he has had on our company."
Levett helped build the company's global operations that now make up a significant portion of the company's revenue, serving as vice president for worldwide industrial business (1986-1991), vice president for the Asia Pacific region (1991-1996) and vice president of international business (1996-1999).
