Taking to social media regarding the development on Monday, Jensen wrote about his new innings and said, "I will soon start in a new role as Executive Director - International Transportation, for Cummins, Inc. In the beginning of February, I will relocate to Dubai. Consulting has provided me with tons of valuable lessons, and for those, I am indebted to the many clients who had faith in our ability to help them navigate the mess of the last two and a half years. But at heart, I am a BCO, and I look very much forward to working full-time in that capacity again. I am grateful for the opportunity, and I will approach it humbly. Cummins is a terrific, 103-year-old company, combining cutting-edge products with strong, progressive company values, and I can't wait to work even closer with all the people I've already met, and those I'm about to."
