PRATT & WHITNEY EXECUTIVES NAMED TO LEAD ENGINE PROGRAMS

 EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Two veteran Pratt & Whitney executives have been named to key posts in the company's Large Commercial Engines organization.
 David E. Crow will serve as senior vice president-propulsion systems for the PW4000 and JT9D programs, the engines which power wide-body airliners around the world.
 Stephen N. Finger has been named senior vice president-propulsion systems for the PW2000 and JT8D engines used in standard-body aircraft such as the Boeing 757 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 series. He will also be responsible for the Pratt & Whitney engineering unit for the International Aero Engines V2500.
 Both will report to James T. Johnson, president of Large Commercial Engines.
 "Ed and Steve will lead our engine program management, systems design and integration, as well as product planning and business management," Johnson said. "Their top priority is speeding up design and development so we get new engines on the market quicker and cut research and development costs. We have to get even better at meeting our customers' requirements as soon as we can and at the lowest cost."
 Crow served previously as senior vice president, commercial engineering where he led the technical effort on growth versions of the PW4000 which led to its selection by United Airlines as the launch engine for the new Boeing 777 jetliner. Before that he was vice president of production readiness. A Missouri native, Crow joined Pratt & Whitney as an engineering trainee in 1966 after receiving a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Missouri. He subsequently earned a master's degree in mechanical engineering from the Hartford Graduate Center and a doctorate in engineering from the University of Missouri. He is a Glastonbury resident.
 Finger has been serving as director of engineering programs for the PW2000 engine. Previous to that he was director of engineering at Pratt & Whitney's Government Engine and Space Propulsion where he managed the development and introduction of the F100-229 high performance fighter engine. Finger is a Miami native who joined Pratt & Whitney's West Palm Beach operations in 1971 after receiving his bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Virginia. He also lives in Glastonbury.
