In his new role, Gernhardt will will be responsible for all commercial Engines program management, sales and marketing activities, United Technologies said Thursday.
“For the past five years he [Gernhardt] led the PW1100G-JM engine program for the Airbus A320neo from the early flight demonstrator phase to the official program launch in 2010, and was instrumental to advancing it through a number of key milestones, culminating most recently in first flight,” said Paul Adams, Pratt & Whitney president.
“During this time, Greg developed important relationships with customers across our commercial engine business, playing a pivotal role in sales campaigns,” Adams added.
According to UTC, Gernhardt succeeds David Branter and will report to Adams.
