Caterpillar has announced the Jim Buda, its Law and Public Policy Executive Vice President, is retiring.

“Jim has been a trusted advisor to countless leaders at Caterpillar, not the least of which is four CEOs, including myself,” said Caterpillar Chairman Doug Oberhelman. “Not only does he lead a world-class, diverse legal team, but he also designed and built a strategic organisation that looks seamlessly at the company’s influential policy, communications and governmental affairs initiatives on a worldwide basis. I have considered him a close colleague and count him and his wife, Susan, among my dear friends. I wish him only the best in his well-deserved retirement.”

“Jim has built a strong foundation for our critical legal and public policy work,” said Caterpillar CEO Jim Umpleby. “But perhaps his greatest passion and legacy is sharing his and his team’s talents through pro bono legal work in communities throughout the world – assisting those who could use a guiding hand. I wish him and his family a happy and healthy retirement.”

His retirement is effective 1 May 2017.
