Seattle-based, ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has named seasoned cruise executive Steve Smotrys as its new vice president of global sales.
Smotrys will be responsible for Seabourn’s overall global sales efforts, leading the teams who support the travel advisor community in Australia, North America, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Asia.
Prior to joining Seabourn, Smotrys served as vice president of sales and trade marketing for Cunard in North America.
He joined Princess Cruises in 2000 and over his nearly 20 years within the Carnival Corporation, he has led teams in revenue management, market planning, shore excursions, and sales.
Seabourn president Josh Leibowitz said: “Steve and I have worked closely together over the past several years. He brings a deep understanding of the luxury market and the travel industry,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Many of our travel advisor partners know Steve well and we encourage them to join us in welcoming Steve to the Seabourn family.”
Smotrys replaces Chris Austin, who departed Seabourn earlier this month.
