Monday, August 02, 1999
Caterpillar has formed a new Marine Business Unit within the Engine Products Division. The reorganization is designed to strengthen the company's focus on marine customer needs and streamlines communication and response in all aspects of Caterpillar's global marine engine business. Leading the new organization is Jan Arnold, a veteran marketing and sales manager with 21 years experience working not only for Caterpillar, Inc. In addition to steering a team of special business managers focused on specific marine market sub-segments, Arnold will coordinate the efforts of five managers. Bill Heimann, a 27-year Caterpillar engineer with extensive experience in product design, applications and product support, will be marine product group manager. Bob Hallengren, new product introduction program manager, will put a decade of CAT marine engineer experience to use, guiding strategic development, the smooth introduction of new engine designs. Mak Mirhakimi, who has led the Caterpillar marine engine electronics development effort since its inception in 1989, will be electronics program manager, developing and implementing electronic control system strategies. Paul Mathes, marketing and customer services manager, will lead worldwide marketing efforts, as well as a team of engineers focused on product improvement and support issues. K. Bruce St. John, an eight-year Cat Marine veteran, is the strategic planning and commercial support manager.
