The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has bolstered its sales team with a pair of veterans focused on charter, meetings and incentives while two executives, senior sales director and general counsel, have left the company.

Charter specialists Alyssa Logan and Brett Draper

The new hires are Alyssa Logan, director of sales, charter, meetings and incentives, and Brett Draper, sales specialist.

Logan joined from Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., where she was a MICE sales executive for Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises for six years. Before that, she was in MICE sales with Norwegian Cruise Line. Earlier, Logan worked as an on-board cruise sales manager for Seabourn and a shore excursion assistant manager and group sales coordinator at Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Draper has 10 years of cruise industry experience, most recently as manager of corporate and incentive sales for MSC Cruises USA. Previously he was an expedition sales specialist at Lindblad Expeditions. Draper also worked as a charter service manager for Norwegian Cruise Line and an event manager for Holland America Line, where he spent five years at sea. Before his cruise career, he was a front of house manager at Westin Innisbrook Golf Resort.

Logan and Draper report to Angela Composto, VP sales & marketing.

Lyall Duncan and Kris Endreson exit

Meanwhile, general counsel Lyall Duncan and Kris Endreson, senior director, sales, have left The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Both are seasoned industry professionals and were previously with Crystal Cruises.

CEO Doug Prothero said The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will be recruiting another legal person, though not necessarily a general counsel, and a sales executive who will be dedicated to national accounts.
