SeaDream Yacht Club hires sales boss for Australia

SeaDream Yacht Club has announced the appointment of Rune Grenager as vice president of sales for Australia and Europe.

Grenager brings over 20 years of travel industry experience to SeaDream, having started his career as a bell boy at the iconic Grand Hotel in Oslo, and before moving into sales, he had an extensive hotel management career in both Norway and Austria.

Grenager previously worked as director of sales at Radisson Hotel Group in Norway and as an account director in the Nordics for travel agencies and consortias.

In his most recent job at DFDS Seaways, he focused primarily on the B2B market, including MICE.

In his new role at SeaDream, Grenager will focus on sales growth for the company’s classic twin yachts and will report to executive vice president Andreas Brynestad.

“We are most excited to welcome Rune on board,” Brynestad said.

“His great standing in the travel agent community and his extensive experience in the travel industry will be a great asset to our SeaDream family.”

Commenting on his appointment, Grenager said: “I am delighted to join a company which I hold in high esteem.

“SeaDream has always stood out for offering a unique luxury product and continues to stay at the forefront of innovation. I look forward to putting forth my industry knowledge to identify new growth opportunities as the brand in global destinations.”

Grenager will be working out of SeaDream’s Oslo office.
