HII President and CEO Mike Petters participated in a panel discussion at the Ready Nation Global Business Summit on Early Education, which took place on Friday, Nov. 2, in New York City. Addressing HII’s motives for investing in early childhood education, Petters spoke about the long build cycles for Navy ships and said, "If our company cannot have a long horizon on this picture, no company can."
