Kate O’Hara has taken up two new cruise roles, splitting her time between Fowey Harbour and the UK Chamber of Shipping.

O’Hara is cruise manager at Fowey Harbour in Cornwall where she will support the team in further developing the port’s cruise business.

Approximately 15 cruise ships visit the estuary harbour each year. Popular attractions, including the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short distance from the port.

Captain Paul Thomas, harbour master said, ‘We are thrilled to have Kate join our team, her reputation within the cruise sector is exceptional and she will make a first-class ambassador for the harbour.’

O’Hara said, ‘I am delighted to assist the team in Fowey in reaching new customers and growing the business, enabling more passengers to enjoy the amazing experiences this area of Cornwall has to offer.’
