Cummins announced the creation of a dedicated Cummins Marine organization within the existing engine operating segment, consolidating its commercial and recreational teams.

Cummins Marine will be led by Jim Schacht, formerly general manager and executive director of Cummins Commercial Marine.

Schacht will continue to report to Ed Pence, who is Cummins vice president and general manager of the high-horsepower-engine business.

"Today's announcement reflects how important our marine customers are to us," Schacht said in a statement. "Customers will benefit with access to a single global team of experts who are focused on enabling their success by addressing all of their propulsion, power and integration needs."

"I'm excited about the opportunity to bring the power of one Cummins Marine organization to our customers," Cummins vice president and engine business president Dave Crompton said. "Working together will better position us to grow and to bring innovative, dependable and sustainable solutions to marine customers worldwide, today and into the future."
