Crystal appoints svp finance, strategic planning
Crystal Cruises hired former Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. executive Donald Mason as svp finance and strategic planning. He brings more than 15 years of experience in corporate planning, accounting, revenue management, sales and marketing research, and financial operations.

Mason will work from Crystal's new branch office in Miami, and report to Crystal president and ceo Edie Rodriguez.

Mason's 'vast knowledge of financial strategy and operations paired with his experience in the cruise industry will be incredibly beneficial as we strive to grow the Crystal brand,' Rodriguez said.

Most recently Mason was director of fleet operations finance and administration at Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., where he was instrumental in managing operational expenses and shipboard revenues as well as overseeing capital asset requests and financial analysis for fleet operations.
