Pratt was Carpenter's CEO in 2009–2010, and has been a board member since 2002. Pratt will also continue as the chairperson of Carpenter’s board, a position he has held since 2009. During his tenure as bhairperson, Carpenter has made numerous investments in its business, acquired Amega West and Latrobe Specialty Metals, and built Carpenter’s new Athens facility.

Pratt has a distinguished career in metals, materials, and information technology serving as CEO of both Carpenter Technology and OAO Technology Solutions. 

He replaces Bill Wulfsohn as CEO, who resigned today to take another role outside of the company. While Wulfsohn will step down from the CEO role and board of directors immediately, he will assist the company in a transition support role until the end of the year.

Outstanding leadership

“It has been a pleasure to work with Bill. Together, we have accomplished a great deal,” said Pratt. “We wish Bill well in his next endeavors and thank him for his outstanding leadership and service to Carpenter.”
