August 2012 Member Spotlight
HYPE Member Since:
Pratt & Whitney
Technical Analysis Manager
What he does:
Last year, I helped negotiate a $1 billion deal for the sale of Pratt & Whitney’s new PurePower jet engines. As a Technical Analysis Manager, I provide jet engine performance analysis and maintenance forecasts to support sales campaigns. Based on my analysis of the revenue stream created by the jet engine sale, I help negotiate the terms and conditions of the sales contract with the airline customer. It’s a fun and challenging role that draws heavily on both my engineering background and business knowledge. I have a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Master of Science in Management from Rensselaer.
I became heavily involved in HYPE about 2 years ago. Currently, I serve on the Community Involvement, Membership, Personal and Professional Development, and Public Policy committees. Through HYPE, I have been fortunate to befriend many energetic and passionate people who are enthusiastic about making Hartford a great place to live, work, and play.
Future Aspirations: To lead the Salute to HYPE Cup team in winning the 2013 HYPE Cup!

Best vacation I’ve been on: I spent an incredible week skiing at Whistler Blackcomb last year. In the near future, I would like to ski the powder on the mountains of Utah and Colorado.
