French Polynesian cruise company, ‘Paul Gaugin Cruises’, has appointed former Crystal Cruises’ sales person, Susan Robison as General Manager, Sales and Marketing.

In addition, Liz Coleman has been promoted to Vice President of Sales.

Robison will head up the North American sales and marketing teams in the newly created role.

She will be responsible for increasing awareness of the Paul Gauguin Cruises experience and drive bookings for the 330-guest cruise ship ‘Paul Gauguin’.

Previously, Robison oversaw marketing and global communications for Crystal Cruises.

She now reports to Navin Sawhney, CEO of Americas, for PONANT and Paul Gauguin Cruises.

Coleman has been with Paul Gauguin Cruises for 14 years and will report to Robison in her new role. She was previously the director of sales for the US Northeast/Midwest regions and is replacing former vice president of sales, Sandy Stevens, who is to retire at the end of this month.

“Susan’s expertise in communicating a company’s brand story in compelling ways across all channels will help to raise travellers’ perception and understanding of the distinctive charm and boutique experience that Paul Gauguin Cruises offers, while Liz will continue to bring her extensive brand knowledge to the travel advisor community,” Sawhney explained.
