Caterpillar congratulates Jon Huntsman on being confirmed as U.S. Ambassador to Russia. His record of service to the United States spans posts under each of the last five U.S. Presidents – including ambassadorships to Singapore and China – and as the 16th governor of Utah. His experience makes him uniquely qualified to provide sound diplomatic leadership in an increasingly complex global environment. We have valued Jon’s contributions to Caterpillar's Board of Directors and wish him, his wife Mary Kaye and their family well in this important assignment.
