Brian Wilson and Andreas Lippert have been named new eMobility general manager and vice president and GM Electrolyzers, respectively.
«I am proud to announce these appointments within the Accelera leadership team as we continue to position the business to win 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», said Amy Davis, President of Accelera.
Wilson joined Cummins in 2008, taking on a variety of roles throughout his tenure, including in corporate strategy, the growth office, and as General Manager of the global bus business. Wilson previously served as General Manager of Accelera’s Electrified Components business and helped initiate the recently announced battery cell manufacturing joint venture with Daimler Truck and Paccar. Wilson will now lead Accelera’s new eMobility business, which provides a wide range of battery electric vehicle products. Today this includes batteries, e-axles, traction systems, auxiliary controls and power, and electric powertrain integration.
Lippert joined Cummins in 2020, leading its growth office. With more than 20 years of international leadership experience in technology innovation, engineering, product management, and corporate strategy, he held previous roles at General Motors, General Electric and Innio. Lippert most recently served as Vice President of Accelera Engineering and was instrumental in developing technology infrastructure and optimizing technical collaboration. With a combination of deep technical expertise and business acumen, Lippert will drive the electrolyzer business, which Cummins has identified as its most significant outgrowth opportunity, to scale its industry-leading technical innovation and support the growing global green hydrogen economy.
Wilson and Lippert will continue to work alongside Alison Trueblood, General Manager Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Technologies, in an experienced and dynamic group of leaders at the helm of Accelera’s diverse zero-emissions product portfolio.
