Effective Oct. 1, Embree will succeed Jim Cramer and Miñarro Viseras will succeed Bernardo Calleja.

Under her leadership at Cummins, she reshaped the Components segment portfolio, drove global growth in core business areas, and developed key technologies to ensure the business met high standards for global emissions compliance. Prior to her work at Cummins Inc., she held engineering and operations roles at Colgate-Palmolive.

“We are excited to welcome Tracy to our Otis team. She is an accomplished, results-oriented global business leader with a strong record of consistently delivering sales and margin expansion,” said Marks. “Her vast experience leading product and service focused organizations within large, complex, industrial manufacturing businesses will serve her well at Otis as she continues to motivate teams and deliver quality and excellence to our customers.”

Embree holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MBA from Harvard Business School. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for Louisiana-Pacific Corporation and is a founding member of Extraordinary Women on Boards (EWOB).

Miñarro Viseras brings nearly 20 years of global, commercial, operational and P&L management experience with two highly-reputable multi-national organizations – Ingersoll Rand (NYSE: IR) (formerly Gardner Denver) and Emerson (NYSE: EMR), where he was responsible for critical segment operations such as sales, service, engineering, product management and manufacturing. In his leadership roles, he drove consistent growth and margin expansion, completed numerous bolt-on acquisitions and delivered exceptional customer service.

“Enrique’s extensive global experience, with a focus on continuously elevating performance and boosting profitability, equips him with the right qualifications to successfully lead our diverse EMEA region” Marks continued. “He is able to strategically connect market needs with best-in-class technological and operational solutions to drive business growth, and he has a proven track record of successfully leading culture change by fostering a sense of ownership and accountability among team members.”

Miñarro Viseras holds a doctorate in engineering, an MBA, and Master of Engineering and Management from Cranfield University in the United Kingdom, as well as a degree in industrial engineering from Universidad Politécnica of Valencia in Spain.

“There will be a short period during which Jim and Bernardo will support Tracy, Enrique and me to ensure a smooth transition and business continuity,” Marks added. “We are grateful for Jim and Bernardo’s more-than seven decades of combined and distinguished service with Otis.
