World Remanufacturing Conference

September 19-20, 2018 | Rochester, NY

Keynote Speaker

Tana Utley

Vice President

Tana L. Utley is vice president with responsibility for the Large Power Systems Division at Caterpillar Inc. Through this global organization, Caterpillar designs and manufactures the most comprehensive lineup of large diesel and natural gas engines and remanufactured components in the industry. LPSD’s large engines are used to power marine, electric power, oil and gas, and rail applications as well as Cat® mining machines.  The division also provides engine, machine and component remanufacturing—the process of returning an end-of-life product to “same-as-when-new” condition in a manufacturing environment—which reduces Caterpillar’s overall environmental impact and helps customers reduce their total cost of ownership.

Since joining Caterpillar in 1986 Utley has held a variety of engineering and general management positions including key engineering and leadership roles in the development of the near-zero-emissions engines Caterpillar sells today. She has also held general management positions in Caterpillar’s components and engines businesses.

In 2007, the Caterpillar Board of Directors named Utley vice president and Chief Technology Officer in which capacity she was responsible for redefining the company’s technology strategy, and for the development of machines and engines to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 4 emissions regulations—the largest product development program in the company’s history. In 2012 Utley was named vice president with responsibility for the Industrial Power Systems Division and president of Perkins Engine Company, based in Peterborough, England, where she was responsible for the profit and loss of Caterpillar’s small reciprocating engines business. She was appointed to her current position in October 2013.

Utley earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Bradley University and a Master of Science in Management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she was a Sloan Fellow. She currently serves as Caterpillar representative on the Board of Directors of the Sustainable Manufacturing Innovation Alliance, and is a member of the Board of Directors of SPX Corporation and the Heart of Illinois United Way.  She is also a member of the Society of Women Engineers, the Illinois Valley Striders, and the USA Triathlon Association.

The three ACE Awards honor an inspiring person or company that has been nominated for creating positive change for the remanufacturing industry in the categories of Advocacy, Collaboration, and Education. ACE Award recipients are willing to do what it takes to make a difference and we think they should be celebrated for their efforts. Winners of the three ACE Awards will be announced at a dinner reception on Day 1 of there conference.
