Pratt & Whitney has reorganised its civil turbofan business, combining Large Commercial Engine operations with after market services under a single management structure to better align the two previously separate businesses.

The change will mean more responsibility for Bob Leduc, P&W executive vice president and chief operating officer, who now assumes the added position of Large Commercial Engines president, including after market services. The move follows the retirement of Jim Robinson after a year at the head of the spares and maintenance organisation.

P&W's military engines president, Stephen Finger, will take over responsibility from Leduc for engineering and operations, including manufacturing. Leduc retains control of the programme office and, like Finger, continues to report to company president Louis Chenevert.
