In an internal reorganisation at a global level, Jan Swartz is now group president of Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia.

The group president’s role will keep the focus on regional strategy.

There is no change to Carnival Australia’s structure. Ann Sherry remains executive chairman of Carnival Australia and Sture Myrmell remains president of P&O Cruises Australia.

Instead of reporting to Holland America Group ceo Stein Kruse, Sherry and Myrmell now report directly to Swartz, who continues to report to Kruse.
