Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, the parent company of Norwegian Cruise Line, Regent Seven Seas and Oceania Cruises, has just announced the expansion of responsibilities to its recently appointed head of Australia & New Zealand, Steve Odell, to also cover the South Pacific and Asia including Japan, India, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Operating from NCLH's new regional headquarters in Sydney, Odell will be "focused on the continued growth of the company's presence in the Asia Pacific region," which he said is "experiencing exponential growth in demand".
"With three market-leading cruise brands, including Norwegian Cruise Line - a leader in freestyle cruising, Oceania Cruises - a leader in the upper-premium cruise segment, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises - a leader in luxury cruising, NCLH is well positioned to respond to this demand and grow its presence in the region," Odell said.
The appointment continues NCLH's expansion of its international leadership team, including Frank Medina as Vice President and Managing Director Latin America, and David Herrera as Senior Vice President and Managing Director China.
