Two Carnival subsidiaries have announced senior management changes.
Holland America Line (HAL) announced that Orlando Ashford (pictured), who has served as President for nearly five and a half years, will be leaving the company at the end of this month.
Seabourn Cruise Line has also announced the retirement of President Richard Meadows at the end of May.
Meadows had been President of Seabourn since 2011.
Announcing Ashford’s departure, Stein Kruse, HAL Group CEO and Carnival UK said, “Orlando has made a substantial contribution to Holland America Line during his tenure, bringing a renewed energy to the premium cruise line that was recognized with many awards and accolades. His unique background as an innovator and global leader in human resources was highly respected in our organisation and his dynamism will be greatly missed.”
Speaking of Meadows’ departure, Kruse said; “Rick’s contributions to the cruise industry and his leadership in elevating Seabourn to the ultimate ultra-luxury cruise experience, bar none are legendary. He will forever be part of our Carnival Corp story and he has made us all better through his professionalism, authenticity, and leadership.”
Neither cruise line announced plans for a successor.
