Former U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte to join Caterpillar Board of Directors
August 14, 2017

Former U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH, 2002-2009), has been elected as a member of Caterpillar’s board of directors.

Ayotte also served as New Hampshire’s first female attorney general (2004-2009) and, prior to that, she was deputy attorney general and chief of the Homicide Prosecution Unit in New Hampshire.

“During her career as a public servant, Kelly has distinguished herself and has been widely recognized for her independence and her ability to work collaboratively across political lines to serve the best interests of her constituents and her country. I look forward to working with her on the board,” said Caterpillar Chairman Dave Calhoun.

As a senator, Ayotte was a member of the Commerce Committee, where she played a key role advocating for policies and laws to support skills training for high-tech manufacturing jobs and private-sector job creation. She was also actively engaged in efforts to extend the Export-Import Bank, supporting U.S. companies as they compete and export products around the world, and she fought for smart tax reform that would make American companies more competitive.

“Kelly brings significant government experience to our board, which will be helpful for Caterpillar as we address a wide range of public policy issues,” said CEO Jim Umpleby said in a statement.

Ayotte joins 13 other members on Caterpillar’s board of directors and will be a member of the Public Policy & Governance Committee of the board.
