Samir Mehta heads Collins Aerospace’s Mechanical Systems strategic business unit, based in Charlotte, North Carolina. In this role, he manages a diverse and exciting portfolio, which touches aspects of flight: Collins Aerospace products help aircraft take off and land, stay trim in the air, move forward, carry cargo, conduct rescues and so much more.
He is committed to bringing best-in-class solutions for customers around the world. At UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS), he led strategic direction of the company’s worldwide commercial and military aftermarket business and customer service, including sales execution, technical and strategic support, program management, asset management and entry into service. Prior to that, while at Sikorsky, he led the corporation’s full lifecycle of military products and services, from technology maturation to product delivery and support.
At Collins Aerospace, he continues to integrate diversity of thought, experience, background and style to improve existing products — and develop new ones — as part of the Rockwell Collins and UTAS integration.
Samir earned his bachelor’s degree from Stonehill College. He also holds a master’s degree in public administration and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Connecticut.
