Cummins and its CTO help focus the 2019 SAE COMVEC on the fast-shifting technology landscape that faces both on- and off-highway sectors.

Jennifer Rumsey has been a member of SAE International her entire career and has participated in the organization's COMVEC event as an attendee and occasional panelist for well over a decade. Now, as Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at Cummins Inc., her role in the annual affair has been elevated, providing executive leadership for this year's programming and presenting an opening-day keynote presentation, along with her Cummins colleague Rich Freeland, President and Chief Operations Officer.

“This is a key period of change for our industry and this year is Cummins 100th anniversary, so it was a really good tie with COMVEC and you'll see that connected to the theme of the conference,” she said. That theme, Charging & Fueling the Next 100 Years, hints at the growing diversity of power solutions that engineers and companies working in the on-highway commercial vehicle, mobile off-highway equipment, ground defense, and mining sectors must navigate.
