Pratt & Whitney President Christopher Calio to Become Raytheon COO

Christopher Calio, president of Pratt & Whitney since January 2020, will transition to a new role on March 1 as chief operating officer of the aircraft engine manufacturer’s parent company Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX).

He will oversee the four business segments of Raytheon and manage various corporate functions such as supply chain, technology and engineering and enterprise services, the company said Monday.

Calio held a 15-year career at United Technologies Corp., Pratt & Whitney’s parent organization until the completion of the merger between UTC and the former Raytheon company in April 2020.

Under his leadership, the engine builder embarked on major product development and enhancement initiatives such as the release of GTF Advantage configuration F135 propulsion system offerings.

“He has guided strategic investments and delivered industry-leading innovation across commercial and military programs,” Raytheon Chairman and CEO Greg Hayes said of Calio.

“As we execute on our strategy, including our commitment to develop talent across the organization, Chris’ experience and leadership will help advance the company’s growth and transformation initiatives,” Hayes added.

Shane Eddy, senior vice president and COO at Pratt & Whitney, will succeed Calio as president of the business.
