FREMONT, CA: Roger Raley has named as President by Alpine Advanced Materials. Raley, an international executive with experience in the defense and commercial aerospace markets, takes the helm at Alpine as the company experiences growth driven by burgeoning demand for HX5, its military aviation-grade thermoplastic nanocomposite.
Before joining Alpine, Raley was appointed at TTI, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, where he led its Military and Aerospace Business Unit as Vice President, shepherding the $460 million segment through remarkable revenue and market share growth. With over two decades of experience helping deliver solutions that improve complex defense and commercial global supply chains, Raley is well-suited to the new role at Alpine.
"Every day, the commercial space, aerospace, and defense companies we're working with seem to find new ways they can use HX5 to save fuel and reduce carbon emissions with lightweight and strong components," stated Joe D'Cruz, Executive Chairman of Alpine Advanced Materials. "Roger is the perfect fit to assume the lead, ensuring these superior custom-engineered parts find their way into the right global supply chains."
Holding the exclusive global license to HX5, which was developed by Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, Alpine works with companies to design and manufacture lighter and stronger components. Engineered to replace machined aerospace-grade aluminum at half the weight, HX5 represents over a decade of testing and validation with an R&D investment of more than $50 million. In multiples test, it has repeatedly demonstrated the capability of withstanding the most demanding applications, and is certified for utilizing in high-speed helicopters, jet fighters, rockets, satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, and amphibious transport vehicles.
