George Taylor recently was appointed director of Caterpillar Power Systems North America. Formerly marketing manager for the Caterpillar Asia Pacific Marketing Division in Singapore, Taylor replaces Jim McReynolds, who now leads Caterpillar’s Global Paving Division.

“George Taylor has the strategic planning experience to enable us to continue our engine strategy of delivering customer value while meeting ever-tightening emissions requirements,” says James J. Parker, vice president of Caterpillar’s Power Systems Marketing Division. “With a passion for our business, our people, our dealers and our customers, George provides solid leadership for the entire Power Systems North America team.”

In his new position, Taylor has primary responsibility for all aspects of the on-highway engine business, including line haul, over-the-road and vocational trucks, and buses and RVs. He also will lead field service operations and parts marketing for all of the Power Systems business sectors, including electric power, marine, petroleum and industrial engines.

Taylor joined the company in 1998 as manager of strategic planning for Caterpillar Business Development Services. He subsequently held several leadership positions within the sales and marketing organization, moving to Singapore in 2003 to take on the role of marketing manager for the Asia Pacific Marketing Division. He recently returned to the United States to assume his new role within Power Systems Marketing North America.
