About This Meeting

Huntington Ingalls Industries President and CEO Mike Petters addressed the Detroit Economic Club Wednesday, January 28, 2015, about focusing more on the long-term in an environment where short-term objectives are becoming more and more institutionalized.

Petters said, “The point is that the short-term pressures are real in the world of publicly traded companies. Customers typically approach everything with a budget-and-expense mindset, when ours is an investment-and-return one. Great business leaders do successfully make this very, very important translation.”
