Pratt & Whitney has named Jill Albertelli President of its Military Engines business, succeeding Matthew Bromberg, who has elected to leave the company to pursue other opportunities. Albertelli, most recently Pratt & Whitney’s senior vice president of Transformation and Strategy, will lead the Military Engines organization effective today, and will work closely with Bromberg through the end of this year to ensure a smooth transition.
“Pratt & Whitney’s Military Engines business is well-positioned for long-term success thanks to its technology and product offerings across a strong portfolio of major platforms such as the F-35, B-21 and KC-46,” said Chris Calio, Pratt & Whitney president. “That momentum will continue and grow with Jill, who brings 30 years of technical and leadership excellence to the role. I’m confident the Military Engines business will continue to deliver on our customers’ high expectations.”
Albertelli brings a history of demonstrated excellence in a broad range of leadership roles to Military Engines, with experience in roles of increasing importance in engineering, operations, program management, sales, commercial aftermarket and product quality. Most recently, she led the company’s Transformation and Strategy organization, including overseeing digital technology, the building of Pratt & Whitney’s world-class turbine airfoil production facility set to open in 2022, in Asheville, N.C., and leading the company’s innovative Office of the Future initiative, with 80% of headquarters salaried staff afforded greater flexibility in work-remote options.
“We thank Matthew for his leadership in Military Engines, and for his 20 years of distinguished service at Pratt & Whitney and the former United Technologies,” Calio said. Bromberg has held leadership roles that spanned former United Technologies, Hamilton Sundstrand and Pratt & Whitney, including leading United Technologies Strategy & Development Group, and the last five years as President of Military Engines. His leadership was instrumental during the Goodrich acquisition, the establishment of the GTF network, and most recently, the successful ramp and deployment of the F135 engine program with the U.S. Government Joint Program Office. A former U.S. Navy Lieutenant, Bromberg was an executive sponsor of the Pratt & Whitney Veterans employee resource group, a member of the MIT LGO Board of Governors, and board member for the USO.
