Di Pietro joined Lockheed Martin Australia in August 2016, and had been chief executive of the company since December of that year.

He's overseen the delivery of the first of Australia's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) fleet and, according to his company profile, has been "leading LMA to achieve its vision to be Australia’s partner of choice for defence, aerospace, sustainment and technology solutions".

Prior to joining Lockheed Martin, Di Pietro served in the Royal Australian Navy for 40 years, accumulating over 5,000 hours flying in helicopters and aeroplanes.
