His expertise in remanufacturing includes aftermarket operations, business development, supply chain management, and strategic sourcing and planning. He previously worked for Cummins Inc., a global leader in diesel engine manufacturing, where he started as a strategic sourcing manager responsible for procurement, contracts, supplier readiness, compliance and process improvement.
Rising through the ranks, Peng was first promoted to global reliability leader heading the quality assurance team for the global sales of Cummins parts and coordinating customer service improvement programs. He then became general manager of Cummins’ remanufacturing activities in China where he oversaw business development, operations and long-term strategy; coordinated landmark remanufacturing standards for China; and helped develop core import policies and regulations between the U.S. and China. Most recently, he served as operations leader for advancing Cummins’ next generation of high-efficiency remanufacturing operations in the Americas.
Before joining Cummins, Peng was a senior consultant at two of world’s leading financial services corporations, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Deloitte. At the latter, he performed audit and financial due diligence services for automotive and aviation customers.
