Brian Jones,

Success is a team sport.

Meet Brian Jones

In his early days working as an experimental mechanic at Caterpillar’s Technical Center, Brian honed his skills in the powertrain arena. He’s an authority on everything from axles and brakes to transmissions and torque converters. Others in the Fleet Monitoring Center rely on his know-how, just as he counts on their expertise when he encounters a tricky issue in another machine system. Brian knows the team is better together — because bouncing ideas off one another and sharing experiences is the best way to solve your equipment problems proactively.
