Effective 2nd October, Jack Anderson (pictured) took over the helm of Crystal Cruises as the company’s interim president and CEO.
The announcement came as Tom Wolber, Crystal’s President and CEO since September, 2017, is stepping down. Wolber is completing his three-year service contract with the company.
“Jack’s history with Crystal runs deep; with nearly a decade of senior leadership and executive consultant roles at the company – combined with his 30-plus years of cruise industry experience – he possesses a profound knowledge of the Crystal brand and the luxury cruise market. He is uniquely suited to step into this role during this pivotal time in travel, ensuring a seamless transition,” said Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, CEO and Chairman of Crystal’s parent company, Genting Hong Kong.
“We are grateful to Tom for his dedicated leadership, the successful introduction of our river ships and expanding Crystal into the expedition market, while maintaining Crystal’s commitment to an award-winning luxury experience,” he added.
