The Atlantic Council is pleased to announce that Mike Petters, president and chief executive officer of Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), America’s largest military shipbuilder, will give an Atlantic Council Captains of Industry  address entitled “Playing the Long Game” at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 10th, at the Atlantic Council’s headquarters.

Prior to his appointment on March 31, 2011 to lead HII, Petters served as president of Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding. Petters has served in the shipbuilding sector over many decades after joining Newport News Shipbuilding in 1987 in the Los Angeles-class submarine construction division. There he held a number of increasingly responsible positions through the organization, including production supervisor for submarines, marketing manager for submarines and carriers, vice president of aircraft carrier programs, vice president of contracts and pricing, and vice president of human resources. 

The Atlantic Council Captains of Industry Series is a platform for senior executives in aerospace and defense to address the public interests their companies serve and the public policies that shape these markets. By engaging the perspective of business leaders about issues at the interface of defense ministries and industries, the series is cultivating a constituency for practical solutions to these problems.
