Mary Ellen Jones Named President Of The Engine Alliance

Head Of Sales And Marketing Elevated To Top Spot

Mary Ellen Jones has been named President of the Engine Alliance, a 50/50 joint venture of General Electric and Pratt & Whitney. Jones will succeed Jim Moravecek who will return to Pratt & Whitney in a new leadership position.

Jones comes to the Engine Alliance from Pratt & Whitney where she most recently led Commercial Engines & Global Services Marketing. Prior to this role, she served at the Engine Alliance as head of Sales & Marketing.

"I am pleased to have the opportunity to lead the Engine Alliance during an exciting time when the GP7200 is doing so well in service, and we have additional A380 aircraft with GP7200 engines entering service," Jones said. "It is also an honor to succeed Jim Moravecek, whose leadership has helped this joint venture become even more successful."

Throughout her career with Pratt & Whitney, Jones has held positions of increasing responsibility both domestically and internationally in sales, government relations and communications. Jones holds a bachelor's degree in Business from Michigan State University and a master's degree in Management from Johns Hopkins University.

"I am confident that Mary Ellen's experience with the Engine Alliance and commitment to our customers will be an asset to the Engine Alliance," said Moravecek. "I wish Mary Ellen and the entire Engine Alliance team continued success."

The GP7200 is derived from two successful wide body engine programs, the GE90 and the PW4000. It benefits from the two programs' latest, proven technologies and the lessons learned from more than 25 million flight hours of successful operation. Certified at 76,500 pounds of thrust, the engine has the capability to produce more than 81,500 pounds of thrust. In addition to being the quietest, most fuel efficient engine for the A380, the GP7200 engine has emissions that are well below current and anticipated regulations.

The GP7200 is manufactured at GE and Pratt & Whitney, with GE manufacturing the high pressure compressor, combustor and high pressure turbine, and Pratt & Whitney manufacturing the fan module, low pressure compressor and low pressure turbine. Final engine assembly is conducted at Pratt & Whitney's Engine Center in Middletown, Connecticut. GP7000 Engine Program participants include SNECMA (France), Techspace Aero (Belgium) and MTU Aero Engines (Germany).

The GP7200 entered revenue service in 2008, with the first Emirates A380. Since entering service, the GP7200-powered A380 has not had an in-flight shutdown and has demonstrated a departure reliability of 99.9%.

In addition to Emirates, the Engine Alliance GP7200 entered service with Air France this month and has been selected to power A380 aircraft for Korean Airlines, Etihad Airways, Air Austral and the International Lease Finance Company (ILFC).
