Dominic, who will report directly to RCI President and Chief Executive Adam Goldstein, was previously responsible for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and he now adds Latin America, Asia Pacific and the Caribbean to his remit for Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises. He also continues in his role as Managing Director of RCL Cruises Ltd.

Stuart will work alongside Jo Rzymowska, who will lead the UK and Ireland Celebrity Cruises business. Both roles are new, and follow the announcement that the UK and Ireland office is creating three dedicated businesses for Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises in response to the significant market growth achieved.

Stuart brings with him a 20-year track record in the leisure and hospitality industry including airlines, travel agencies and hotels. He has held senior roles in businesses such as IHG, Thistle and Guoman Hotels, Choice Hotels Europe and KLM.

Dominic Paul said: “We are evolving our business to be in the best possible position for future growth. Our new structure in the UK and Ireland, and the industry-leading management teams now taking shape, means that we can confidently deliver against the individual growth strategies of Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises. We hope to be able to announce the new leadership role for Azamara Club Cruises very soon.”

Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises are currently recruiting for additional sales and marketing roles created by the move to dedicated teams for each brand, which will be in place by January 2014.
