Matthew F. Bromberg to Succeed Bennett Croswell as President of Pratt & Whitney Military Engines; Croswell to Retire in May

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Pratt & Whitney today announced Matthew F. Bromberg will succeed Bennett Croswell as president of its military engines business upon his retirement in May. Bromberg, who most recently served as president of the company’s commercial engines aftermarket business, will join Pratt & Whitney Military Engines as senior vice president, Feb. 1, to ensure a smooth transition. Croswell will support UTC in a consulting capacity following his retirement. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“Our military engines business is well-positioned for long-term success, thanks in large measure to Bennett’s leadership,” said Pratt & Whitney President Bob Leduc. “That momentum will continue with Matthew, who brings tremendous experience and vision to his new role. I’m confident the military engines business will continue to deliver on our customers’ high expectations.”

Since joining UTC in 2002, Bromberg has demonstrated high performance across a broad variety of senior leadership roles at Pratt & Whitney, the UTC Corporate office and UTC Aerospace Systems. A former U.S. Navy Lieutenant, Bromberg serves as the executive sponsor of “UTC-4-Vets,” an employee-resource group for veteran employees of Pratt & Whitney and United Technologies, and is a board member for the USO of Metropolitan New York.

Croswell retires following a distinguished 38-year career at Pratt & Whitney, including senior leadership roles with the company’s Advanced Programs & Technology, F119, and F135 engine programs. During Croswell’s nearly six years leading Military Engines, Pratt & Whitney was selected as the engine provider for the B-21 Raider bomber and as a participant in the development of future combat engines through the U.S. Air Force Adaptive Engine Transition Program (AETP), and the U.S. Army Improved Turbine Engine (ITE) program. Croswell was also a member of three Collier Trophy award-winning teams.

Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines and auxiliary power units. United Technologies Corp., based in Farmington, Connecticut, provides high-technology systems and services to the building and aerospace industries.
