Leadership

Dave Smitson

President

Dave Smitson brings a wealth of knowledge and breadth of experience to his role as President of Crosspoint Power & Refrigeration. After completing his BS in Industrial Engineering at Georgia Tech, Dave held positions with Texas Instruments. He later went on to secure his MBA from Harvard.

Dave began his career with Cummins Mid-States Power, Inc., as the parts manager of the Indianapolis branch and later moved into the role of branch manager. His years in the branch provided him with a great deal of insight, and in 1993, he assumed leadership as President of the distributorship and became Principal in 1997. He expanded the company to include Mid-States Power & Refrigeration (currently Crosspoint Power & Refrigeration, LLC) in 1993.

In 2007, Dave merged Cummins Mid-States and Cummins Cumberland, and became Principal and President of Cummins Crosspoint, LLC which covered a five state territory and served a multitude of industries with over 700 employees.

In 2016, Cummins Crosspoint was sold to its parent manufacturer, Cummins Inc. as part of a broad, corporate strategy to own all of its distribution. In the transaction, Dave kept ownership of Crosspoint Power & Refrigeration and still serves as its president.
