Cummins VP Takes Over Company's Power Systems

Wed Sep 14, 2016

The head of Power Systems for Cummins Inc. says he’s always loved running something business-related, making it perform better and doing so in a team atmosphere. That makes the task of leading a recently reconfigured core business unit seem like a good fit for the former Austrian national basketball team member.

Norbert Nusterer, 47, took over as president of the Power Systems business Aug. 1, succeeding Dave Crompton in that role. In December, the company merged its Power Generation business with its High Horsepower unit to better align the working relationship between the two. The result was Power Systems, which now includes generators and high-horsepower engines under one roof.

Nusterer, formerly vice president of Supply Chain Operations and Parts, and Crompton worked on the reorganization together.
