George Burkley

Executive Director

George Burkley

George Burkley’s vision and technical insights have guided the development of both regulatory and special interest issues in the maritime industry. He designed and oversaw the building of Maritime Pilots Institute’s state-of-the-art waterways, ship simulators, and manned models. Our innovative Brown Water training program was inspired by his motivation to fill gaps in conventional industry training programs.

Through his leadership as Maritime Pilots Institute’s executive director and his dedicated support of Northshore Technical Community College’s emerging maritime curriculum, he has been able to guide Louisiana’s next generation of educated mariners towards success.
