Embree leaving Cummins after 23 years


Cummins’ Vice President and President of the Distribution Business, Tracy Embree, is leaving the Columbus-based global power leader after 23 years at the company.

Cummins Inc. on Tuesday said Embree will step down Sept. 8 to pursue an external opportunity.

Embree has served in a variety of leadership roles at the company, including leading Cummins’ distribution business since 2019. Over that time, the business delivered record sales, the company said.

“Tracy has had a tremendous impact on people and our business during her career at Cummins,” said Cummins Chair and CEO Jennifer Rumsey in a press release. “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 also led Cummins’ components business from 2014 to 2019, achieving record sales and profitability and expanding its product line to include transmissions, Cummins said.

She also held other 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.

Cummins Senior Vice President Tony Satterthwaite will serve as interim leader of the distribution business after Embree leaves, the company said. Satterthwaite previously led the distribution business from 2015 to 2019.
