Tony Satterthwaite to Serve as Interim Leader of the Distribution Business
Today, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) announced that Tracy Embree, Cummins Vice President and President of the Distribution Business, is leaving Cummins on September 8 to pursue an external opportunity. Tracy served in a variety of leadership roles during her distinguished 23-year career at Cummins.
“Tracy has had a tremendous impact on people and our business during her career at Cummins,” said Jennifer Rumsey, Cummins Inc. Chair and CEO. “She is a role model for our leadership culture and how you invest in people and teams to enable both to grow and develop. She has coached and mentored numerous employees and been a leader in our leadership development programs. The results of that investment in people and her focus on delivering results have made her an effective business leader. She has grown the businesses she has been a part of and delivered outstanding results. I wish my friend and colleague all the best in both her professional and personal endeavors.”
Embree has led the Cummins Distribution Business since 2019. Over that time, the business delivered record sales and EBITDA; recentered its strategy around delivering a differentiated customer experience; improved employee and leadership development; and executed its technology roadmap to support the business strategy.
From 2014 to 2019, Embree led the Components Business during a particularly significant time for the growth of that segment. Under her leadership, the business achieved record sales and profitability and expanded its product line to include transmissions. Embree also helped to increase market share around the world in core business areas and develop key technologies to ensure Cummins engines and its customers would meet the increasingly challenging global emissions standards.
Embree held other key leadership roles during her career including president of the Turbo Technologies Business, executive director of the Global Midrange On-Highway Engine Business, and executive director of Cummins’ Chrysler Business.
Upon Embree’s departure, Cummins Senior Vice President Tony Satterthwaite will serve as interim leader of the Distribution Business, which he previously led from 2015-2019. Satterthwaite has been with Cummins since 1988 and over the course of his 35-year Cummins career, he has served in a variety of leadership roles including President and Chief Operating Officer, President of the Distribution Business, Power Generation Business and a number of other global leadership roles.
“I am delighted Tony will serve as interim leader of the Distribution Business,” said Rumsey. “He successfully and effectively led the Distribution Business before and has the experience to ensure the business continues to deliver strong results. Tony will continue to serve in his broader role as Senior Vice President and be a key leader and partner to me in evolving Cummins for the future. I am grateful for Tony’s continued leadership – he understands our customers, is a great leader of people and has delivered excellent results in every role he’s served over the course of his career.”
