Longtime employee Jill Albertelli is taking over as president of Pratt & Whitney’s military engines business, company officials announced Monday.
The East Hartford-based aerospace manufacturer said Albertelli will be taking over for Matthew Bromberg, who is leaving the company after 20 years to “pursue another opportunity.” Albertelli was most recently Pratt & Whitney’s senior vice president of transformation and strategy and oversaw digital technology and the building of Pratt’s new turbine airfoil production facility set to open in 2022, in Asheville, North Carolina.
“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,” Pratt & Whitney President Chris Calio said in a statement announcing the move. “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 began running the military engines organization Monday and will work closely with Bromberg through the end of this year, company officials said. Bromberg was praised for his leadership during major changes in Pratt over the last two decades. He was president of military engines for five years.
“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.
