Cummins this week named Luis Pasquotto vice president of the company’s Latin American Business. The appointment, which was effective Aug. 1, makes Pasquotto a corporate officer.
Pasquotto will oversee the Engine Business across Latin America in his new role. In addition, he will lead Cummins’ overall business in the region as president of the Latin America Leadership Council. In this capacity, he will also be responsible for the company’s business strategy as well as for improving the collaboration and execution across all four of Cummins’ business units — EBU, Distribution, Power Generation and Components.
Pasquotto joined Cummins in 1992 and has held leadership positions within the EBU in Brazil, one of the company’s key growth markets. He currently serves as general manager of Cummins EBU Brazil, a position he has held since July 2008. Prior to taking that role, Pasquotto served as director of marketing for the EBU in Brazil from 2000-2008.
“Luis has done an outstanding job of helping turn Cummins into the market leader in the medium-duty truck and construction engine markets in Brazil, and in leading the business to record profitability during the last economic cycle,” said Dave Crompton, vice president – MidRange Engine Business. “His knowledge of our markets, his passion for Brazil and South America and his relentless pursuit of excellence make him ideally suited for his expanded role.”
