John Krummen, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Peterson Power Systems, is responsible for all personnel and operations at Peterson Power Systems, Inc.
John is driven by a passion for our industry and for growing our business. He got his start working with diesel engines in 1989 after taking a job as a trainee mechanic for Peterson Tractor Co. in Martinez, California. In the years that followed, John advanced through various service, sales, and management roles at the dealership before eventually being named Vice-President of Product Support in 2004.
In 2011, John left the earthmoving division to lead our recently purchased Navistar dealer: Peterson Trucks, Inc.
