As a result of this change, Bell is announcing Mike Deslatte, Ryan Ehinger, Kurt Fuller and Chris Gehler as SVPs of their respective programs, effective July 3.

They will join the Executive Leadership Team reporting directly to Lisa Atherton, President and CEO, Bell.

Mike Deslatte – SVP & Program Director, H-1 and SMA

This change keeps Bell’s focus on delivering the best technology with the competitive edge required for the Joint Force, its Allies and Partners to win on the battlefield.
