Virgin Voyages promotes Shane Riley to associate VP

Virgin Voyages has promoted director of international sales Shane Riley to associate vice president of international sales.

He joined the new line in May 2018 from Carnival, where he was UK director of trade engagement.

In addition to being responsible for driving sales for Virgin Voyages, Riley has also been overseeing the launch of their online agent platform FirstMates.com, recruited two UK-based sales managers and is organising an overnight stay for 1,000 UK agents on their first ship, Scarlet Lady, which launches in the spring.

Australia was added to Riley’s remit in August when he became director of international sales.

Scarlet Lady will be followed by Valiant Lady in 2021, with two more ships on order for delivery in 2023
