Matt Sipe, Tom von Eschenbach Take on VP Roles at Parry Labs; Aydin Mohtashamian Quoted

Parry Labs has named former U.S. Army aviation officers Matt Sipe and Tom von Eschenbach as vice president of strategy and open systems and VP of crewed aviation systems, respectively, as part of the company’s efforts to drive growth as a mission systems integrator and pursue parallel objectives across the Department of Defense.

The company said Monday the strategic hires reflect its investment in digital engineering, edge computing and modular open systems approach.

“[Sipe and von Eschenbach are] transformational leaders deeply involved in shaping the fighting force structure for Army Aviation, and have been major champions for MOSA,” said Aydin Mohtashamian, chief operating officer at Parry Labs.

In his current role, Sipe will help Parry Labs expand capabilities in support of customers by developing a MOSA roadmap and accelerating efforts to deploy innovative platforms.

Sipe previously served as chief engineer and lead MOSA proponent at the Army’s Program Executive Office Aviation and as an active-duty officer within the U.S. Air Force, where he served as a program management and engineering expert to the Special Operations C-130 Program Office.

Apart from serving as VP, von Eschenbach will manage facilities and coordination activities as general manager of Parry Labs’ site in Huntsville, Alabama.

His military career included time serving as director of the Army Aviation Capabilities Development and Integration Directorate, director of program management for Army Aviation programs and commander of the 3rd Squadron, 17th Calvary.

He spent more than five years at Collins Aerospace as director of program management for Army rotary wing solutions.

Von Eschenbach sits on the board of the Vertical Lift Consortium and is a member of the Aerospace Engineering Advisory Council at Auburn University.
