Carnival UK announces senior management changes

Wednesday, 27 Nov, 2018 0

Carnival UK has promoted Paul Ludlow and Simon Palethorpe to the roles of president P&O Cruises and Cunard respectively as part of a senior management reshuffle.

The management change will see P&O Cruises vice president of marketing Christopher Edgington and Cunard vice president of UK sales and international development David Rousham leave the company.

As brand presidents, Ludlow (pictured below) and Palethorpe will continue to report to Carnival UK president Josh Weinstein and will be responsible for overall brand leadership, the end-to-end guest experience and future strategies.

The sales and marketing functions of both brands have been consolidated with Alex Delamere-White adding marketing communications, CRM and digital to his P&O Cruises trade relations responsibilities, with an expanded team reporting into him.

Cunard’s current vice president of marketing, Angus Struthers, takes on an additional new UK sales role working with the trade to grow Cunard’s UK business.

In the changes, which come into effect from December 1, 2018, Delamere-White and Struthers will each take the title vice president sales and marketing and will continue to report to Ludlow and Palethorpe respectively.

Weinstein said: "These moves enable us to sharpen our focus, strive towards our long-terms goals and progress our talent within the business. This leadership team will underpin P&O Cruises’ position as Britain’s number one holiday choice and Cunard’s undisputed role as the benchmark for luxury travel as we work alongside our trade partners every step of the way."

He added: "This is a world-class management team leading world-class holiday companies.

"Both brands are on the cusp of significant growth and with Paul at the helm of P&O Cruises and Simon leading Cunard, we have set ourselves up to rise to the occasion.  They and their management teams have got the capabilities and talent to help us build a very bright future."
