Cummins: New Roles for Engine Segment Leaders

Cummins announced three roles for senior executives in its Engine business division segment.

Effective Feb. 1, Amy Boerger will lead the North America region for On-Highway as vice president and general manager, North America. José Samperio is replacing Boerger in her previous leadership role of the Field Sales and Support organization as executive director, sales, for U.S./Canada. Also joining the North American region is Lyndon Jones, who replaces John Malina as the leader of the Leasing team.

“In order to ensure we hit our goals in North America, we have made some executive changes, as the core of Cummins’ strength is our great regional leaders across the globe,” said Brett Merritt, vice president, On-Highway Engine Segment, in a news release.

Boerger will lead a single organization for North America, encompassing the dealer, fleet and OEM teams, Cummins said. She has spent 34 of her 37 years at Cummins in the North America on-highway space, in a variety of roles and organizations in sales and service, OEM and general management.

“Amy is clearly recognized as the industry expert for Cummins, has long-standing relationships across all parts of the truck and bus businesses, and serves in a variety of leadership roles in the American trucking industry,” Merritt said.

Samperio will report to Boerger and lead the end-user Sales and Support team for national accounts and help represent Cummins in the industry.

Most of Samperio’s 20-year professional experience has been with Cummins, growing his career with increasing levels of responsibility in functions such as engineering and sales, and most recently serving as the strategy leader for the engine segment. He has held leadership roles in Beijing, China, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Jones has been named general manager of leasing for North America, also reporting to Boerger. He will work with some of Cummins’ largest customers and will be responsible for the execution of the strategy of the leasing business. Jones has been with Cummins since 2005, in leadership positions within the Engine and Distribution segments.
