Accelera names eMobility and Electrolyzer business leaders
04 December 2023
Accelera by Cummins, the zero-emissions technology business segment of Cummins Inc., has announced that Brian Wilson has been named general manager – eMobility, and Andreas Lippert has been appointed vice president and general manager – Electrolyzers.
Amy Davis, president of Accelera, said the appointments within the leadership team will continue to position the business segment for success in the electrification and hydrogen markets. “This represents the continued evolution of Accelera as we drive technical innovation and optimize our support of customers on their decarbonization journey,” she added.
Wilson, who joined Cummins 2008, previously served as general manager of Accelera’s Electrified Components business and helped initiate the recent battery cell manufacturing joint venture with Daimler Truck and PACCAR. Now, in an expanded role, he will lead the segment’s eMobility business, which provides a range of battery electric vehicle (BEV) products, including batteries, e-axles, traction systems, auxiliary controls and power and electric powertrain integration. According to Accelera, the eMobility business brings together key technologies and support teams to provide a more seamless experience for customers while driving innovation across the BEV space.
Lippert is a more than 20-year industry veteran who joined Cummins in 2020 to lead its growth office. He most recently served as vice president of Accelera Engineering and was instrumental in developing technology infrastructure and optimizing technical collaboration, the company said. Lippert will now oversee the electrolyzer business, which Cummins has identified as its most significant outgrowth opportunity, to scale its technical innovation and support the growing global green hydrogen economy.
Wilson and Lippert will work alongside Alison Trueblood, general manager - Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Technologies, as part of the leadership team at the helm of Accelera’s zero-emissions product portfolio.
