Cummins has appointed UK-based Jonathan Wood as Vice President – New Power Engineering. He will be responsible for accelerating innovation and scale in the company’s alternative power business segment, which includes its work on electric power and hydrogen portfolio.
Jonathan holds a master’s degree from the University of Sheffield. He is a Chartered Engineer with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
He is also a graduate of the Cummins Executive Leadership Development Programme and has been employed by Cummins for 27 years. Most recently Jonathan was Vice President – Components Engineering. Before that he held other technical leadership roles.
Says Cummins Vice President and President – New Power Amy Davies: “As we move toward our goal of zero emissions, we are faced with increasing technology complexities, and we need to continue to shape the technical organisation of our business with the right balance of process, startup culture and agility, underpinned with a unifying vision as we innovate and scale.
“Jonathan’s past experiences ushering in technological changes will serve out customer and our communities well as we navigate through this transition to decarbonised power.”
Cummins says it is “rapidly growing its capabilities to support electrified power and the overall hydrogen economy,” including in buses. It has more than 800 people dedicated to innovating alternative power technology, including engineers on four continents.
