Putting a Stout degree to work

Peter Castrilli ’71 has recently joined Raytheon Corp. as business development executive.

His responsibilities focus on providing Raytheon support services to the U.S. Department of Defense in the Pacific Rim and also in support of mission support services for U.S. military test and training ranges and installations in the United States and its territories and internationally.

“While attending UW-Stout, I was fortunate enough to have studied under several professors who encouraged students to ‘think outside the box’ by going beyond what was in the traditional curriculum and applying it to other ambitions,” Castrilli said. “You can’t get much farther apart from my original career in the contract food service business to being a U.S. government defense contractor.”

He and his wife Peggy have lived in the Washington, D.C., area since 1977, where playing golf, fox hunting on horseback and watching Washington politics takes up the majority of their free time.
