Cummins Appoints New General Manager – Commercial Marine

Cummins Inc. has named Jim Schacht General Manager for the Commercial Marine Business.

Working in close cooperation with the Cummins distributor network, Schacht will be responsible for all commercial marine business activities for the Engine Business Unit (EBU) globally, including business development and support. He will be located in Columbus, Indiana and will report directly to Ed Pence, Vice President of the High Horsepower Engine Business.

Jim Schacht joined Cummins in 2010 as the Executive Director of Cummins Business Services, responsible for Cummins’ corporate shared services organization that provides Accounting, Customer Care, HR and IT Services to Cummins operating entities worldwide.

Over the last four years, Jim created a truly global services entity, increasing global support capabilities, improving internal service delivery and customer satisfaction measures, while lowering costs and improving operational efficiencies.

Prior to Cummins, Schacht held numerous executive-level leadership roles in the communications, information technology and hospitality industries. Schacht holds a BA in Philosophy from Trinity College (Hartford, CT USA) and an MBA from Harvard University.

Jim Schacht replaces Jenny Bush who will serve as the President for Cummins Mid-South, the exclusive distributor of Cummins products in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, and portions of Florida, Illinois, Missouri, and Tennessee. Across this geography, Mid-South serves a number of markets and is notable for its global leadership within the commercial marine segment. Bush will relocate to the distributor’s headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee.
