Royal Caribbean International has appointed Stuart Leven as managing director for the UK, the latest move in the company’s corporate restructure.
The move, which will also see Dominic Paul expand his role to vice president international, will mean Paul will add Latin America, Asia Pacific and the Caribbean to his regions as well as Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The new UK structure will see Royal appoint separate teams for Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises and Royal Caribbean.
Jo Rzymowska will lead the Celebrity team and an executive is still to be named for Azamara.
“We are evolving our business to be in the best possible position for future growth,” explained Dominic Paul. “Our new structure in the UK and Ireland, and the industry-leading management teams now taking shape, means that we can confidently deliver against the individual growth strategies of Royal Caribbean International, Azamara Club Cruises and Celebrity Cruises. We hope to be able to announce the new leadership role for Azamara Club Cruises very soon.”
Leven has previously worked for IHG, Thistle and Guoman, Choice Hotels Europe and KLM.
