Mike Petters, president and CEO at Huntington Ingalls Industries and a former Wash100 winner, has been honored by the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in validation of his contributions to the marine industry.

Petters received the 2019 Vice Admiral Emory S. “Jerry” Land Medal during the yearly SNAME Banquet event in Tacoma, Wash., the company said Tuesday.
