Reports to Andy Stuart
This newly created role reports to President and CEO Andy Stuart.
'With the launch of our latest ship, Norwegian Encore, in November and the much-anticipated debut of our Leonardo-class ships, it is more important now than ever that we enhance our efforts and have a laser focus on driving results,' Stuart said. 'As such, we are making the most of the exceptional talent we have across the organization. We are very excited that Katina will lead this already exceptional team in delivering truly meaningful results.'
Working hand-in-hand with Athanasiou is NCL veteran Camille Olivere, SVP sales and trade partnerships. With her deep relationships across the industry, Olivere will directly lead efforts with strategic accounts. She will continue to lead the charge with senior executives across the trade while fortifying the line's connection to independent travel advisors.
With more than 20 years of cruise experience, Athanasiou most recently served as SVP charters, meetings, incentives and events, overseeing the sales efforts for full-ship charters and corporate and incentive groups across Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings brands. Previously, she led the MICE sales effort for Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
