In 2012 Doyle joined Adelaide-based SeaLink which bought Captain Cook Cruises, including its Murray River paddlewheeler operation, the previous year.
In his new role Dole, who has been head of international sales and marketing, will focus heavily on national, as well as international sales, while working closely with major trade distribution partners.
He is based in Sydney and will report to SeaLink’s newly appointed coo, Anthony Hayes.
Doyle launched Doyle Tourism Services in 2010 after 11-and-a-half years with Tourism Northern Territory where he was the Sydney-based director Japan, Asia and Cruise.
Before joining TNT he had a 20-year career with Australian Pacific Touring (now APT).
He attended Seatrade Cruise Academy’s ‘The Elements of Cruise Shipping’ in 1999 and served four consecutive two-year terms as chairman of Cruise Down Under (now the Australian Cruise Association).
