Max Asterlin

Max Asterlin joined Fairmont as an Associate in 2013 and joined the Partnership of the firm in 2023. Max has led hundreds of engagements and many internal areas for Fairmont including proprietary market model development, diligence and strategic process maturation, and has been a thought leader in several of Fairmont’s core markets. While active across the aerospace, space, defense, and government service markets, Max’s expertise is particularly notable within aero engines, advanced manufacturing & product technologies, and more broadly manufactured products & services.

Prior to Fairmont Max held multiple engineering and program related positions at United Technologies – Pratt & Whitney. Max worked across multiple space, military, and commercial product lines including the powerplants on the Space Shuttle Main Engine, C-17, Boeing 757, F-35, culminating as a module lead for Pratt & Whitney’s next generation commercial engine, the Geared Turbo Fan, powering the Bombardier CSeries (Airbus 220). Max touched a wide range of engineering and manufacturing disciplines including design, structural assessment, failure analysis, in-field FAA safety investigations, customer service issues, repair development, and program/project engineering predominately within the Turbine Module. Notably, he worked extensively with critical part groups like turbine airfoils and life limited rotating parts in both operational and design aspects. During this time Max received his certification as an ASQ Six Sigma Black Belt and as a Pratt & Whitney Master Black Belt in addition to obtaining multiple utility patents relating to the internal cooling architecture and manufacturing processes for turbine airfoils.

Max holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, an MBA with Honors from Purdue University, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, also from Purdue University. He has received Professional Engineering-In-Training certification.
