Cummins Announces Executive Leadership Changes

Cummins Inc. announced today that President and COO Rich Freeland will retire after 40 years of service with the company.

As part of Cummins’ successions plans, leadership appointments are also taking place, all of which are effective October 15.

Distribution President Tony Satterthwaite will succeed Freeland as President and COO; Components President Tracy Embree will succeed Satterthwaite as Distribution Business President; Chief Technical Officer Jennifer Rumsey will succeed Embree as Components Business President and Jim Fier will succeed Rumsey as Chief Technical Officer.

“[Rich] is one of the most effective leaders in Cummins history because of his ability to connect with customers, develop our employees, and his deep understanding of nearly every element of our business. Equally impressive to me is that Rich has accomplished these things in an unassuming, humble manner,” Cummins Chairman and CEO Tom Linebarger said.
