Boeing and subsidiary Insitu Inc. Aug. 6 named Ryan Hartman Insitu president and CEO, effective immediately.

Hartman most recently served as senior vice president, Insitu Programs. He succeeds CEO Steve Morrow, who is retiring.

“Insitu invented the agile small tactical unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance category and continues to be a leader in the industry,” said Steve Nordlund, vice president for unmanned airborne systems programs. “As Insitu enters its third decade of operation, Ryan is ideally suited to push technologies and processes to continue Insitu’s strong, global growth trajectory.”

As Insitu president and CEO, Hartman is responsible for executing the Insitu business plan and building on its extensive portfolio, which today includes the ScanEagle and Integrator unmanned aircraft. He leads more than 800 employees, based primarily in the Columbia River Gorge area in Washington state and Oregon.

“I’m honored and humbled to be named CEO of Insitu,” said Hartman. “I’m proud and excited to continue our tradition of technical excellence and to support the Columbia Gorge community.”

In his previous position, Hartman led the company’s Integrator, ScanEagle, Advanced Programs and Business Development program offices, where he advanced the company’s research, development and product engineering and the Insitu Common Open-mission Management Command and Control (ICOMC2) ground control station.

“Our people and innovation are our competitive advantages in the region, and Ryan’s selection reinforces Boeing’s and Insitu’s commitment to its continued growth,” said Nordlund.

Hartman is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy and a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Insitu Inc., located in Bingen, Wash., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Boeing.
