Pratt & Whitney today announced Matthew Bromberg has assumed the role as president of the company's military engines business, reporting to Pratt & Whitney President Bob Leduc. Bromberg succeeds Bennett Croswell, who has retired after 38 years with the company. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
"This is an exciting time for Pratt & Whitney as we ramp-up production and global sustainment activities on the F135 engine for the F-35 Lightning II, and as we work hard to earn the privilege to develop and field the next generation of military engines," said Pratt & Whitney President Bob Leduc. "Matthew brings a strong set of skills and experiences to his new position, and I am confident he and the military engines team will prove our commitment to our customers and their mission every single day."
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to lead the military engines business, which Bennett so ably led for the past six years," said Matthew Bromberg. "During his tenure, Pratt & Whitney secured the most enviable portfolio of military programs in the industry, including the propulsion systems for the KC-46 tanker, B-21 bomber, and the fifth generation F-35 fighter. I'm looking forward to helping Pratt & Whitney build on that legacy as we define the future of combat aircraft propulsion."
Since joining UTC in 2002, Matthew has held a broad variety of roles at Pratt & Whitney, the UTC Corporate Office and Hamilton Sundstrand. Matthew most recently led Pratt & Whitney's Commercial Engine Aftermarket business. A former U.S. Navy lieutenant, Matthew has championed veterans' causes as the executive sponsor of the "UTC-4-Vets," an employee-resource group for veteran employees of Pratt & Whitney and United Technologies, and through his service on the Board of the USO of Metropolitan New York.
