Engelhardt has been with Deluxe for nearly 30 years, overseeing the company’s strong position in checking programs for banks, businesses, and consumers. Her extensive knowledge of the industry, as well as deep understanding of the operations and manufacturing process within Deluxe, makes this addition to her portfolio a natural move for the company.

She will also continue as President of the Checks division.
“Our transformation to becoming a payments and data company is clear,” said Barry McCarthy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Deluxe. “As I have said many times, our growth in these areas is supported by our exceptional Check and Promotional Solutions divisions. Having a leader of Tracey’s caliber become Chief of Operations will help us realize greater efficiencies while continuing to win market share.”
