Don Tracy has been selected as vice president of finance and chief financial officer for MGP Ingredients.

Tracy’s business career spans for more than 30 years, of which more than half has been spent in senior level financial and executive management positions. For nearly three years, he served as chief financial officer at Emery Oleochemicals, a global chemical manufacturer, and was based in Cincinnati.

In joining MGPI, Tracy succeeds Robert Zonneveld, who left the company to pursue other opportunities last April. Since that time, the role has been filled on an interim basis by David Harbert, a partner of Tatum, LLC, an Atlanta-based executive services firm.

MGPI is based in Atchison, Kan.
