ECDIS Ltd Managing Director Mark Broster has been Awarded a Fellowship by RiN for ‘In recognition of his significant and innovative contribution to the development of modern digital navigation and bridge team training in the global maritime industry.’
The awards ceremony was held at the RiN (Royal Institute of Navigation) Annual Meeting on 19 July. The award was presented by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in recognition of Mark’s significant contribution to digital navigation.
When asked about his achievement, Mark said:
“I am incredibly proud to have been presented with this award, sometimes it can feel as though all the hard work we have put in over the years is not being recognised within the industry, but this fellowship has clearly shown we are making a difference, and I am so appreciative to everyone at ECDIS Ltd for their tireless efforts, and to the RiN for this prestigious honour. However we still have a long way to go before the industry is up to date with modern navigation systems, and we have a lot of innovative and exciting projects in the pipeline.”
