Effective Feb. 11, Mark Levett will assume the role of Vice President of Corporate Responsibility and Community Relations and Chief Executive Officer of the Cummins Foundation.

“Jean and Mark have had an immeasurable impact on Cummins and were instrumental in the company’s transformation over the past 10 years,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO, Cummins Inc. “Their leadership has also inspired many Cummins employees and greatly improved our communities. They have provided wise counsel to many Cummins leaders, passionately advocated for Cummins values, and consistently added insight and humor to our workplace. Along with many other Cummins people around the world, I am deeply grateful for all they have done for Cummins and for so many communities across the globe.”

Most recently, Mark served as Vice President of Community Affairs where he worked to increase Cummins’ engagement in Columbus and the communities throughout Southern Indiana by creating and nurturing several public-private partnerships that support important education, training and mentoring initiatives.

Mark also led the effort to establish the Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence and has been involved in the community through board positions for Ivy Tech Community College, the IUPUC Board of Advisors, the National Association of Manufacturers Institute, Conexus Indiana, the Columbus Economic Development Board, and the IU Public Policy Institute

Jean Blackwell joined Cummins in 1997 after a career at a law firm and in state government. Jean has held a number of key roles at Cummins including Vice President – General Counsel; Vice President – Human Resources; Vice President – Cummins Business Services; and Executive Vice President – Chief Financial Officer.
