Princess recruits sales and operations manager

Princess Cruises UK has recruited former Thomas Cook national sales and events manager Natasha Lizardos.

Lizardos, who was with Thomas Cook for 20 years, joins Princess as sales and operations manager on a 12-month contract.

The appointment is part of a reshuffle, which has been organised for when Rachel Poultney, Princess' sales director for UK & Europe, starts maternity leave in January.

From December 2, she will be temporarily replaced by Karen Farndell, who is currently the line's UK senior sales manager.

In turn, Farndell's position will be filled by Mark Lowman, sales operations manager.

Lizardos replaces Lowman and will report in to him during her tenure.

Natasha was formerly national sales and event manager at Thomas Cook. Before this her roles there included regional cruise expert and various store manager positions.

She takes responsibility for Princess' trade sales operations activities including online training, online and offline campaign collateral, events and communications.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises' vice-president for the UK and Europe, said: "We are delighted to welcome someone with Natasha's skills and experience to the team with so much on the horizon for us.

Lizardos said: "With the recent arrival of Sky Princess, the upcoming launch of Enchanted Princess as well as the roll-out of OceanMedallion this is a really exciting time for Princess Cruises. I am absolutely delighted to be joining their dynamic team."
