Travel tech company appoints European cruise manager
In a push to drive greater cruise sales, the travel tech company Amadeus has appointed an industry insider as its European cruise line sales manager.
Garry Brown, who previously ran the cruise department for online travel agency Opodo, takes up his role as Amadeus looks to expand its cruise business in Europe. He has previously worked for a range of cruise companies including Royal Caribbean, Carnival UK and Star Clippers.
Among his responsibilities will be to increase the profile of Amadeus’ latest cruise shopping and booking tool Cruise Shop.
“I am confident that my experience and industry contacts will support Amadeus’ continued growth within this flourishing sector, which has a lot to offer travel sellers and providers,” Brown said.
Eric Gignoux, Amadeus’ head of land and sea travel distribution, added: “Our appointment of Garry coincides nicely with our ambitions to develop the cruise distribution business within UK and Europe.”
