Prior to joining Aerojet, Boley spent 27 years with the Pratt & Whitney business unit of United Technologies Corporation where he held numerous leadership positions of increasing responsibility, including President of Pratt & Whitney’s Military Engines Division.

Boley holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame as well as two Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Management/Finance from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also completed a Management Development program at Harvard Business School.
