Pierre Thomas to head up Swan Hellenic expedition operations

Thomas will be responsible for creating cultural expedition experiences for cruise passengers
26-year veteran expedition leader, Pierre Thomas, will take on the director of expedition operations role at Swan Hellenic.

Thomas has worked with Linblad, Metropolitan Touring, Noble Caledonia and Silversea Cruises, and has a background delivering lectures in five languages on topics such as tropical fish, African history, the Panama Canal and Central American Post-World War II politics.

He has further experience in leading diving expeditions and overland tours by motorbike. 

‘With his tremendous experience and strong relationships with international experts in their fields, nobody could be better placed to ensure our guests enjoy a unique cultural expedition experience, both on and off-board’, commented Andrea Zito, ceo, Swan Hellenic. 

Thomas responded that he is ‘delighted’ to bring ‘cruising to life across a tremendous new five-star fleet’, adding that he looks forward to ‘contributing to the creation of a truly unique discovery experience – geographical, scientific, natural, cultural and artistic.’ 

Hans Heger was named Swan Hellenic's new vice president, hotel operations last month.
