Former Regent Seven Seas president Mark Conroy will be taking the helm at Silversea Cruises’ Miami office, the company announced this week.
Conroy will be responsible for the luxury line’s operations in the Americas. The family-owned luxury cruise line is headquartered in Monaco.
“As of today, Mark will contribute greatly to the further growth of Silversea Cruises,” said Silversea CEO Enzo Visone in a statement.
Conroy left his position as president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises in 2013 after two decades as president. Conroy succeeds Kristian Anderson, who was Silversea’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas since 2013.
Ironically, the post Conroy assumes at Silversea is similar to the executive position his wife, Marilyn Conroy, held there from 2004 to 2009 as senior vice president of sales. She is now executive vice president at luxury travel specialist company David Morris International.
The cruise line will debut its ninth vessel, 596-passenger and all-suite Silver Muse in early 2017. At 40,000 gross registered tons, it will be the largest yet.
