New Cummins President and CEO Jennifer Rumsey will deliver the keynote address at Green Truck Summit during Work Truck Week 2023.

Next year's Green Truck Summit will take place at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, on March 7. Rumsey’s keynote starts at 8:45 a.m. ET. 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.

As Cummins 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.
“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. 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.
