Wesco Aircraft Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: WAIR), a leading provider of comprehensive supply chain management services to the global aerospace industry, today announced that Jay L.

In conjunction with Mr. Haberland’s election to the Board of Directors, the size of the Board will be increased to nine members. Mr. Haberland will serve as a Class I director, with his initial term expiring at Wesco’s 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

Mr. Haberland retired from United Technologies Corporation (UTC) in 2008, where he worked for 14 years, most recently as Vice President of Business Controls. Previously, he was the Chief Financial Officer at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, a multi-billion dollar, wholly-owned subsidiary of UTC. He also served as Vice President and Controller, Acting CFO, and Director of Internal Audit during his tenure at UTC.

Prior to UTC, Mr. Haberland held a variety of leadership positions at the Black & Decker Corporation. He began his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Boston.

Mr. Haberland also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of Ducommun Incorporated and is the Chairman of its Audit Committee.

Randy Snyder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Wesco Aircraft, stated, “We are delighted to welcome Jay to our Board of Directors. His strong financial and operational experience, as well as intimate knowledge of the aerospace and defense industries, will be a valuable asset as a member of our Board of Directors.”
