Stephanie Disher is MD of Cummins South Pacific, the first woman to hold this position.

Disher gains the post vacated by Andrew Penca who is now executive director - Asia Pacific Distribution for heavy-duty diesel engine supplier Cummins Inc.

She has led the company’s branch network and operations business since May 2015.

Before this, she served as the finance director for the company.

"As operations director, Disher has led a number of strategic and operational initiatives for Cummins South Pacific, including key customer service and support technology initiatives, continued improvements in customer satisfaction and continued growth in aftermarket sales and support business," Cummins says.

Penca joined Cummins South Pacific as managing director and general manager in 2014 and has led the organisation through strategy and effectiveness initiatives.

These include significant systemic and behavioural based improvements in occupation health, safety and environmental (OHS&E) aspects, product improvements in both the on-highway and off-highway markets, and improvements in overall sales, service, and support capabilities.

Penca will remain based in Melbourne.
