Blankenship will report to GE Home & Business Solutions President and CEO Charlene Begley.

“Chip brings a wealth of business leadership and program and product management expertise to this role,” said Begley. “We see tremendous opportunity to leverage his background and look forward to growth under his leadership.”

Blankenship joins the Appliances team from his most recent role as vice president and general manager for the Commercial Engines Operation for GE Aviation. Prior to GE Aviation, Chip was the general manager for Aero Energy, a division of GE Energy.

Blankenship began his GE career in 1992 as a staff scientist at the Global Research Center. He joined Aviation in 1996 and held several product and program management positions before taking on the business leadership role in Aero Energy.

Blankenship earned a bachelor's of science degree in materials engineering from Virginia Tech and a doctorate in materials science and engineering from the University of Virginia.

Blankenship succeeds James P. Campbell who has elected to retire on Dec. 31, 2011 after 30 years of service to GE.

“It is with immense gratitude that we’d like to recognize Jim for his dedicated service to GE,” said Begley. “In his three decades of service to our company, Jim has distinguished himself as a leader known for his passionate focus on the customer and his employee development and advocacy.”
