Notes of appreciation and good wishes from travel advisors flooded Norwegian Cruise Line's Partners First Facebook page on the news that Camille Olivere is leaving.

Partners First

Olivere, SVP strategic sales & trade partnerships, was instrumental in creating the Partners First philosophy, said a company spokesperson, who acknowledged her 'tremendous service' and 'many contributions.'

Forging 'unprecedented trust' in the brand

'In both hundreds of presentations to the trade, often done in tandem with Andy Stuart, and as a force in shaping policies, Camille helped to forge an unprecedented trust amongst travel agents in the NCL brand,' according to Mike Driscoll, editor-in-chief of Cruise Week

Olivere had two stints at Norwegian.

Strategic accounts

For the past year she has directly led strategic accounts, working closely with Katina Athanasiou, chief sales officer.  Earlier, she was SVP sales since returning to Norwegian in November 2016 after two years away.

In the time away Olivere served as SVP partner brands, World Travel Holdings, responsible for the private-label partnership cruise portfolio including new business development. Before World Travel Holdings, she was SVP US sales for Club Med.

Olivere first joined Norwegian in 2009 as VP sales. In 2012, she was promoted to SVP, achieving significant growth in the charter business and leading efforts to re-energize the brand’s travel advisor advocacy.
