Three long-time Caterpillar vice presidents – Steve Fisher, Steve Larson and Bill Rohner – announced their plans to retire Feb. 1, 2014.

Fisher, vice president of the Large Power Systems & Growth Markets Division, joined Caterpillar in 1978 and was instrumental in the company’s mergers and acquisitions activities, according to a press release. Larson, vice president of the Parts Distribution & Diversified Products Division, spent more than 34 years with Caterpillar. Rohner, vice president of Cat’s Electric Power Division, spent more than 41 years with the company.

Tana Utley, vice president of the Industrial Power Systems & Growth Markets Division, will replace Fisher as vice president of Large Power Systems & Growth Markets. Ramin Younessi will take Utley’s place as vice president with responsibility for the Industrial Power Systems & Growth Markets Division.

To replace Larson, Caterpillar is realigning its Parts Distribution & Diversified Products Division and its Customer Services Support Division. As part of the realignment, Cat’s Parts Distribution business will be integrated into the Customer Services Support Division. Vice President Steve Gosselin will lead this division. Bill Finerty, currently vice president of the Americas Distribution Services Division, will assume responsibilities for the newly realigned Diversified Products Division,

In addition, Pablo Koziner was named vice president of the Americas Distribution Services Division; Steve Niehaus will replace Rohner as a vice president with responsibility for the Electric Power Division; Mike DeWalt was appointed vice president of the newly created Strategic Services Division; and Jill Daugherty was named corporate controller.
