Seabourn and Holland America to restructure UK teams

Karen Farndell to become director of sales & marketing for HAL

Seabourn and Holland America Line are to further restructure their teams in the UK, following announcements earlier this year.

Karen Farndell is to leave Princess Cruises and join Holland America Line as director of sales & marketing for UK and Ireland. She will join the company on September 19 and will report directly into Nico Bleichrodt, vice president international sales.

Lucy Davies, Emma Paolino and Aaron Myers will remain with Holland America and report into Farndell.

Earlier this year it was revealed that Tony Roberts, vice president of Europe for Princess Cruises was to join Seabourn as vice president global operations. The announcement came with the news that Lynn Narraway, who at the time led both Holland America and Seabourn in the UK, would become the managing director of UK & Europe for Seabourn only.

It has now been revealed that Wendy Lahmich will join her as director of sales UK, with Europe added to her brief. Dani Scannella, Charlotte Pinkus, Carly Perkins and Adam Scholey will also all become members of Seabourn’s UK team.

Narraway said: “For now it is business as usual for both brands as we finalise this new structure, which is likely to start taking effect in the Autumn. We want to make sure that the transition into having separate teams for Seabourn and Holland America Line in the UK is as smooth as possible ensuring that our agent partners receive the same excellent service from both incredible brands.”

Both Holland America Line and Seabourn are currently recruiting for new roles within the UK teams.
