A senior figure in the engine and powertrain business, Mr. Younessi is Caterpillar’s Group President, Energy & Transportation, responsible for marine, petroleum and electric power; rail services and products; turbines and gas compressors; and industrial and large power systems.

He joined Caterpillar in 2013 after a 30-year career in commercial vehicles and engines, which included senior leadership positions at Daimler AG and Navistar Inc.
