Directors of the RIN
It takes a very special skillset to guide the Royal Institute of Navigation - to oversee innovations to ensure the Institute stays relevant, to ensure the delivery of its core value to members, and to lead the world's foremost institute of navigation in both its day-to-day and its longer-term strategic affairs. To date there have been only five Directors of the Institute, their careers in the role spanning 70 years of navigation development and radical changes to the navigation world.
