On Friday (May 27, 2022), Pratt & Whitney announced that Rick Deurloo will succeed Carroll Lane as President of Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines, who is leaving the company for another leadership opportunity. While taking on this additional role, Mr. Deurloo will retain his current responsibilities as the company’s Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). Deurloo assumes his expanded role effective immediately and will continue to report to Pratt & Whitney’s President, Shane Eddy.


Speaking about Rick Deurloo’s expanded role at the company, Pratt & Whitney’s President, Shane Eddy, said,

“Pratt & Whitney’s commercial engines business is well positioned for long-term success thanks to its technology and product offerings across a strong portfolio of major platforms such as the GTF, V2500 and mature engines. That momentum will continue and grow with Rick, who brings a wealth of experience and a deep knowledge of our commercial customers to this expanded role. I’m confident the commercial business will continue to deliver on our customers’ high expectations under Rick’s leadership.


“We thank Carroll for his leadership in Commercial Engines, and for his decade of distinguished service at Pratt & Whitney and the former United Technologies Corporation.”
