ITT Exelis rearranges execs in Electronic Systems sector

Company shifts four around, including a new leader

ITT Exelis has named Rich Sorelle as the new leader of the company's Electronic Systems division. He previously was the vice president and general manager of the division's integrated electronic warfare systems business area.

Joe Rambala will take Sorelle’s place as the leader of that business.

Sorelle has been with Exelis since 1997, before which he held leadership positions at Northrop Grumman and other companies in the defense industry, ITT Exelis said. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the New York Institute of Technology, New York City.

Rambala joined Exelis in 2004, before which he held positions at Honeywell, Allied Signal and Bendix Aviation. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Rutgers University, a master’s in engineering and a master’s of business administration from New Jersey Institute of Technology.

In addition to Sorelle’s promotion, the company has also named two new business area leaders:

Dave Prater has been named vice president and general manager of the Electronic Systems division’s radar, reconnaissance and undersea systems business, and Mark Adams has been tapped as the new vice president and general manager of specialty applications for Exelis Electronic Systems, the company said.

Prater joined Exelis in 2008, before which he spent 25 years in the military. He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Utah, a master’s of business administration in finance from the City University of Seattle, and a master’s in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.

Adams joined Exelis in 2000, before which he founded NexGen Communications, which ITT Corp. purchased and subsequently became a part of Exelis. He holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Virginia, and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

The Electronic Systems division provides solutions that detect and counter emerging threats across the electromagnetic spectrum, the company said in a release.
