Director, Business Development, Viking Cruises
Born in England and raised in South Africa, I’ve been in the cruise industry since 2001. It all started at the ground level in reservations for Cunard & Seabourn. After a tenure there of 9 years, I left the Seabourn as Director of National Accounts. It was then that I exchanged a life in the deep water to a life on the rivers, as I joined Viking River Cruises in March of 2011. Bringing with me years of experience at many levels, I became the Director of Business Development for Viking in South Florida.
In over 7 years at Viking Cruises, I have had the great pleasure of training and educating both our travel partners and their clients alike on the enjoyment and benefits of River Cruising. In 2013 my role expanded to also provide the very same training and support for Viking Ocean Cruises. My biggest achievement came last year, when I was awarded Viking’s Business Development Director of the Year Award.
