His appointment is part of an ongoing strategy to grow Celestyal’s presence in the UK and Europe, by strengthening the European sales network, the company said in an announcement.
“Andrew’s experience and in-depth knowledge of the travel industry will further strengthen the Celestyal brand as a cruise operator, which offers immersion in local experiences in both Greece and Cuba,” Celestyal Cruises CEO Kyriakos Anastassiadis said.
“Following growth in the UK and European market, we are delighted to have him on board as part of our expansion and development plans,” he added.
