Former Raytheon Exec Stephen Zhang Named Virgin Orbit Investor Relations VP

Stephen Zhang, a nearly 13-year veteran of Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) and United Technologies Corp., has joined Virgin Orbit (Nasdaq: VORB) to serve as the launch services provider’s first vice president of investor relations.

He will manage Virgin Orbit’s overall investor relations functions and advise the leadership team on matters related to the investment community, the company said Tuesday.

Zhang most recently served as director of investor relations at Raytheon, responsible for engaging with shareholders, and previously held various financial leadership roles at Pratt & Whitney and its former parent company UTC prior to the latter’s merger with Raytheon.

He joined UTC as a financial leadership program associate in 2009 after earning his bachelor’s degree in finance and operations management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
