COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins Inc. announced that Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Marya Rose will be retiring, effective April 2021, after more than 20 years in leadership positions with the company. Vice President and General Counsel, Sharon Barner, will succeed Rose.

During her tenure, Rose vastly improved the company’s communications platforms and capabilities; transformed Cummins’ physical environment, and introduced new ways of working. Rose also helped make Cummins’ Corporate Responsibility work more impactful and she streamlined many corporate business processes.
