Cummins President & CEO to Deliver Green Truck Summit Keynote

Green Truck Summit will take place at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to Indiana Convention Center on March 7, 2023.

Jennifer Rumsey, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of global power solutions technology leader Cummins Inc., will deliver the keynote address at Green Truck Summit during Work Truck Week 2023. Held annually, Green Truck Summit provides insights and resources to support the work truck industry’s drive toward greater sustainability, productivity and efficiency.

Green Truck Summit takes place at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, on March 7. Rumsey’s keynote starts at 8:45 a.m. It will be followed by a full slate of sessions addressing the evolution of the commercial vehicle landscape as the shift toward zero emissions accelerates.

Work Truck Week, North America’s largest work truck event, encompasses Green Truck Summit, The Work Truck Show, Ride & Drive, educational conference, and more. Educational sessions run March 7–9, and the exhibit hall is open March 8–10. Registration is required and will be available later in October at worktruckweek.com

As Cummins president and CEO, Rumsey oversees the strategic direction, growth initiatives and global operations for the world’s largest independent manufacturer of engines and related technologies. She has focused her 25-year career on advancing technology and bringing products to market that power customers’ success and make a positive difference in the world. Rumsey co-authored Cummins’ Destination Zero strategy, the company’s plan to go further, faster to reduce the greenhouse gas and air quality impacts of its products and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Cummins says it believes adopting cleaner technologies, like near-zero natural gas products and nearer-to-zero diesel, prior to widespread commercialization of zero-emission technologies for all markets, can make an immediate positive impact. To this end, the company is driving innovation in the areas of advanced diesel, natural gas, electrification, fuel cells, alternative fuels and advanced energy solutions. Rumsey has said that Cummins will leverage its expertise to develop sustainable solutions that serve customer needs, positively impact its communities, and protect the planet for future generations.

“With her solid engineering background and extensive leadership experience at Cummins, Jennifer Rumsey has a unique combination of both technical and business acumen,” says Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. “Her understanding of the challenges our industry is facing, as well as the solutions available today and into the future, make her an ideal speaker to set the tone for the 2023 Green Truck Summit.”

Rumsey assumed her current role in August 2022, stepping up from president and chief operating officer. Throughout her time with Cummins, she has played a critical role in making strategic investments in key technologies and markets to transition to lower carbon emissions products, the company says. For example, while she was president of Cummins’ Components business segment, Components launched National Standard VI (NSVI) products in China and Bharat Stage VI (BSVI) products in India designed to reduce emissions. 

Today, she serves on the board of directors of Cummins Inc. and global industrial company Hillenbrand. She is a member of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the Purdue Engineering Advisory Committee, and Women in Trucking Association.
