The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) has elected John Hatley PE, Vice President, Americas, and Director of Market Shaping, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions, as a Fellow of the institution.

Candidates for election as a Fellow (FRINA) must have demonstrated exceptional contributions to the profession, a record of superior achievements in their career and having held positions of responsibility. Nominees are endorsed by two sitting FRINA, following which a membership committee carries out a full professional review and assessment of the applicant’s history of achievements.

“I am most honoured to be elected as a Fellow of RINA. This recognition is both very humbling and rewarding. I am excited about the future and look forward to continuing my support of Wärtsilä’s market shaping efforts as the industry navigates through a period of dramatic change. The company is a leader in gas initiatives in support of sustainable shipping, and our naval architecture and marine engineering experts are playing a major role in this work,” says John Hatley.

RINA was founded in 1860 to advance the art and science of ship design. It is headquartered in London, and is a global and highly regarded professional institute of naval architects. RINA members span more than 90 countries and are involved in a range of marine activities, including ship design, construction, repairs and operations. The organisation’s principal goal is to set the highest standards of professional competence, conduct, and integrity.
