Cummins Inc. announced June 2 that Tony Satterthwaite has been promoted to president of Cummins Power Generation effective immediately, succeeding Tom Linebarger, who was named president and chief operating officer of Cummins Inc. last week. Satterthwaite, 48, has been vice president of the generator set business since 2003.
“I am excited to have someone of Tony’s caliber leading this important business in the Cummins’ family,” says Tim Solso, chairman and chief executive officer of the Columbus, Ind.-based company. “His experience gives us an advantage in the highly competitive power generation markets.”
Satterthwaite has 14 years of international experience, living abroad in the United Kingdom and in Singapore. He ran the Southeast Asia region and led power generation Asia-Pacific business. He was named managing director of power generation operations in Ramsgate, England, in 1999 and promoted to vice president in 2001. Before joining Cummins in 1988, Satterthwaite was a general field engineer for Schlumberger.
“Tony has done a terrific job for us during the restructuring and the rapid growth of our generation operations,” Linebarger said. “He has the business background and experience necessary to lead this organization as we pursue profitable growth opportunities for the future.”
