Gitlin, 44, has been with UTC since 1997, holding leadership positions in legal, business development, program management and customer service. Before the acquisition of Goodrich, he served as President, Aerospace Customers & Business Development, at Hamilton Sundstrand, where he oversaw aerospace customer service and support, business development activities, strategic partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions.

“I would like to personally thank Curtis for his 25 years of dedicated service to Goodrich and his leadership at UTC Aerospace Systems since the acquisition,” Bellemare added. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
