Motion Industries, (Birmingham, AL):  Patrick Cummings was promoted to senior VP and CFO. He joined Motion in 2012 as AVP of Corporate Compliance. Since then, he held the position of U.S. controller from 2014-2019, before becoming VP of Financial Planning & Analysis.

It makes me extremely proud and happy that after a nationwide search, the Motion candidates proved to be the ‘best in class,’ which says a lot about Motion, our succession planning/process and our teammates.”
