Kaman Corporation (NYSE:KAMN) today announced that Jairaj ‘JC’ Chetnani has
been appointed to the position of Vice President and Treasurer, reporting to
Robert Starr, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Chetnani succeeds Starr in the Treasurer position and joins Kaman from Quanex

Fortune 500 transportation services provider. Over the course of his career to
date, Chetnani has also held a variety of increasingly responsible positions
at organizations both within the United States and India.

“I am delighted to have JC join the Kaman team. He is a seasoned treasury
executive with tremendous experience across a wide range of treasury
disciplines. I know he will play a critical role in Kaman’s future growth,”
noted Starr.

Chetnani received his MBA from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana and
is a CFA charterholder. He also earned his Master of Management Studies degree
from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies in Mumbai, India, and his
Bachelor of Commerce degree from Jai Hind College in Mumbai. He and his family
will be relocating from Texas to Connecticut.
