“Carroll is uniquely positioned to help Commercial Engines continue its transformation," said Mr. Calio. "Carroll brings a wealth of experience to the organization with an understanding of the aerospace industry and key experiences in strategic leadership. I look forward to working with him to implement Pratt & Whitney’s long-term strategy and ensuring we meet our commitments to customers, employees and shareowners."

Mr. Lane returns to Pratt & Whitney after leading Investor Relations for United Technologies Corporation, where he was responsible for developing and implementing strategies that position UTC as a preferred investment to domestic and international investor communities.

Mr. Lane first joined the UTC Corporate Office in 2012 as director, Corporate Strategy & Development.  In 2014, he transferred to Pratt & Whitney as the senior director, Customer Solutions, and served in positions of increasing responsibility including vice president, Commercial Aftermarket.  Prior to joining UTC, he was a director with CSP Associates, an Aerospace & Defense advisory firm in Cambridge, MA. Mr. Lane served in the United States Marine Corps as a Naval Aviator.
