Anjali Pandey has been appointed as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the Cummins Group in India. As the COO, Anjali’s priorities would include partnering with Cummins customers in their energy transition journey toward decarbonisation, positioning Cummins India as the global manufacturing hub, and strengthening the group’s reputation as a leading technology solutions provider.

Anjali’s association with Cummins dates to 2001. In her career spanning 21 years with Cummins, she has successfully led and navigated business and functional leadership roles in Business, Purchasing, Internal Audit, Strategy, and General Management. Her most recent role before being appointed as the COO was Business Leader for the Engine and Components Business.

Her appointment comes at a time when the Cummins Group in India is embarking on a unique path toward decarbonization – by lowering emissions today and investing in innovative solutions for the future to achieve zero emissions by 2050. 

Cummins had showcased its B6.7H hydrogen internal combustion engine (H2-ICE) at IAA Transportation in September. The H2-ICE conversion highlights the opportunity for truck applications across the 10-to-26 tonne GVW range to operate on zero-carbon hydrogen fuel with a potential operating range of up to 500km.

Last month, Cummins Inc signed an MoU with Tata Motors to collaborate on the design and development of low and zero-emission propulsion technology solutions for commercial vehicles in India. These include hydrogen-powered internal combustion engines, fuel cells, and battery electric vehicle systems.

Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins India, said, “I have a great deal of trust and confidence in Anjali and have collaborated closely with her since 2008. I am excited for her as she takes over as the COO for Cummins Group in India. Anjali is passionate about growth and is a great ambassador of Cummins’ values and leadership behaviors. She is committed to building diverse and inclusive teams and making an impact by creating more prosperity for all our stakeholders. I am grateful to have the support of an experienced leader like her to help me advance our company’s growth and decarbonisation agenda, and make it real for our business, people, and communities.”

Speaking on her appointment, Anjali Pandey, Chief Operating Officer, Cummins Group in India said, “I am grateful and excited on being appointed as the Chief Operating Officer for the Cummins Group in India. We have embarked on a decarbonisation journey, and the COO role gives me a unique opportunity to drive business growth by partnering with our customers in their energy transition journey. The road ahead looks exhilarating with new possibilities, and I am personally committed to building a sustainable and prosperous future for our people, customers, business, communities, and the planet.”
