Raytheon Technologies has hired Paul Jones, a US foreign service veteran, for the VP international government relations slot.

He joins RTX from the National War College in Bethesda, where he was deputy commandant and international affairs advisor.

Jones served as US ambassador to both Poland and Malaysia. He also held posts in Macedonia, Bosnia and Russia.

Tim McBride, senior VP of global government relations, said RTX will benefit from Jones’ “deep experience in international relations and extensive knowledge of global dynamics.”

RTX, which has annual revenues in the $75B range, was formed in April with the merger of Raytheon and United Technologies,

UT spun off its Carrier air conditioner and Otis elevator operations prior to its “merger of equals” with Raytheon.
