Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings on Thursday announced the appointments of a slew of executives who will report directly to new president and CEO Frank Del Rio.
The new appointments are Bob Binder, president of international operations; Howard Sherman, executive vice president of revenue management; Robin Lindsay, executive vice president of vessel operations; Victor Gonzalez, executive vice president of supply chain and logistics management and Harry Sommer, senior vice president and chief integration officer.
All have a history with Prestige Cruise Holdings, which Del Rio led until it was acquired by Norwegian last year. The five executives have been working for the company, a spokeswoman said. Michael Flesch, the former executive vice president of vessel operations, has left Norwegian.
Del Rio took the top job at the world’s third-largest cruise company last month after former CEO Kevin Sheehan abruptly resigned.
Drew Madsen will remain president and chief operating officer of Norwegian Cruise Line and Jason Montague will hold onto his job as president and chief operating officer of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, which made up the Prestige Cruises portfolio. Wendy Beck will stay on as executive vice president and chief financial officer.
“Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is on an incredible growth trajectory. The Board of Directors and I have been working closely to fine-tune our vision for the future and how we can best channel the core competencies of our three great brands and the talents of our 30,000 team members,” Del Rio said in a statement. “To that end, we have crafted an organizational structure with both centralized and brand-specific functions and selected seasoned leaders that will carry out that vision.”
