On January 10, 2019, Cummins (CMI) announced that Pat Ward, its current CFO, will retire from his position. Cummins also announced that Mark Smith would be replacing Ward as CFO, effective on March 31, 2019.

He has helped many business leaders, including me, figure out where the business needs improvement and what to focus on first. Pat has also coached and developed many of our financial leaders in the company, inspiring them to be the best that they can be.”
