New President and CEO at Windmill International
Published Wednesday, March 7, 2018


Carl D’Alessandro


Windmill International, Inc., in Nashua, appointed Carl D’Alessandro as its new president and chief executive officer. He succeeds Richard Manganello, who is retiring after 28 years of dedicated service as the founder. 

In his new position, D’Alessandro will oversee and direct all aspects of the company. He will provide leadership and direction to achieve established business goals while working to strategically grow in new markets and sustain value creation for Windmill’s customers and member owners.

D’Alessandro comes to Windmill from Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) where he held several senior leadership roles. Prior to its divestiture, D’Alessandro was president of Harris’ critical networks segment where he built a unified leadership team, integrated legacy businesses and processes, and managed an approximately 6,000-person global employee base. He drove excellent performance in a 500+ program portfolio through focused talent management, consistent process discipline, and recurring high-level stakeholder interactions. During his tenure, Critical Networks achieved record award fee performance and secured several contract re-competes and extensions. The segment developed systems and provided managed services supporting air traffic management, civil and national security spacecraft and satellite ground systems, critical IT infrastructure, and energy and maritime communications. 

Prior to this role, D’Alessandro held multiple executive roles including vice president and general manager of Harris’ civil business unit, VP of advanced programs and technology, and corporate vice president of technology and government segment growth programs. 

“I am excited to join Windmill during its 30th anniversary year and during such important time in its growth trajectory,” D’Alessandro says. “It is a privilege to join the ranks of its member owners, and I look forward to working with the company's talented management team to build on the success it has achieved."
