Chairman Richard Fain cited Yeung's 'valuable combination of skills ... as she is well-versed in technology, digitization and business strategy.'
Royal Caribbean Group President/CEO Jason Liberty added her 'experience in technology, automation and innovation will be a valuable addition to the board as we usher in the next phases of our growth.'
30 years of experience in strategy and operations technology
