"The Caterpillar family is extremely saddened by Glen's passing," said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman. "Glen's legacy of leadership extends far beyond Caterpillar’s walls. His commitment to Peoria and our communities was remarkable. I'll start with his Caterpillar leadership. He rose through the Caterpillar ranks, starting in 1961 as a college graduate trainee. Under his leadership, Caterpillar fully embraced 6 Sigma. It brought remarkable improvements throughout the company, including an intense focus on quality and safety. We continue that focus today, and 6 Sigma remains our foundation for continuous improvement. We are forever indebted to him for his commitment to making Caterpillar a stronger company.
