After serving as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, Matthew Bromberg was not sure what the next step in his career was going to be, but he did know that he wanted to find a company that gave him the same sense of pride he felt while in the military.
“When I was leaving the Navy a lot of people said that I’d find a job but I would not find the same pride, the same level of integrity that I found in the Navy,” said Bromberg. “And I was worried about that in all honesty. But I’m relieved to say I found that in United Technologies.”
Bromberg joined the Navy R.O.T.C program while enrolled in the University of California, Berkeley, and was commissioned once he finished college, as a nuclear-trained submarine officer.
Bromberg credits much of his success to the responsibility that was instilled in him at a young age in addition to the leadership skills he gained in the Navy. After joining UTC in 2002, Bromberg has held positions of increasing responsibility. He is currently the president of Pratt & Whitney’s aftermarket business.
Bromberg also serves as the executive sponsor of UTC-4-Vets, an employee resource group for veteran employees, a role that he has found to be very rewarding.
“It’s rewarding to know that we are making an impact. The employees that are involved with UTC-4-Vets are committed to improving the recruitment of veterans, our training and development and how we celebrate veterans and give back to the community. For me it’s great to see the momentum that UTC-4-Vets has sustained and it’s fantastic to be part of that team.”
