Cummins named Tracy Embree president of the components group, moving on from her post as the president of Cummins turbo technologies. The move will be effective on January 1, 2015.
“During Tracy’s time in CTT, turbo technologies increased profitability by 40% and maintained its market leadership in the heavy duty and midrange segments," said Rich Freeland, CEO.
Embree will be replacing Anant Talaulicar, who was serving in a dual role as president of the components group and leading the India Area Business Organization. Talaulicar will now serve exclusively as the chairman and managing director of the India Area Business Organization.
“Anant took on the combined leadership role to advance Cummins’ global strategy and delivered terrific results,” said Freeland. “The timing is now right for him to focus on our operations and future opportunities in India.”
Embree previously worked in the midrange engine business, where she was responsible for the on-highway line of business. She graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and has an MBA from Harvard Business School.
“She has a strong track record of success and I am confident that she has the right skills, experience and leadership to build on the success that Anant brought to the components group," said Freeland.
