United Technologies Corp. announced Sept. 12 that David Gitlin has been named president of the Aircraft Systems business segment of UTC Aerospace Systems, effective immediately and reporting to Alain Bellemare, president and CEO, UTC Propulsion & Aerospace Systems.

Gitlin succeeds Curtis Reusser who is leaving to pursue his career outside of UTC.

“Dave is exceptionally well qualified to takeover leadership of the Aircraft Systems organization having served as senior vice president of Aircraft Systems since the launch of UTC Aerospace Systems last year and having led the integration process for United Technologies since the agreement to acquire Goodrich in 2011,” Bellemare said. “Dave and Curtis have worked hand in hand since the beginning of the integration and I am confident in Dave’s ability to lead the Aircraft Systems business segment into the future.”

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.”
