Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL) has appointed Martha Poulter as Senior Vice President and CIO.
She joins RCCL after spending the last 13 years of her career as CIO for major corporations, such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts and GE Capital.
Poulter (pictured) will report directly to Adam Goldstein, RCCL president and COO.
“Martha certainly has the background to make a difference at Royal Caribbean,” said Goldstein.
“She’ll bring that experience to bear on a full range of challenges here, including our plans to evolve the fleet’s IT infrastructure, keep pace with the rapid evolution underway in important areas like data privacy and security, and ramp up support for the ‘Excalibur’ digital transformation that is underway across our company.”
“I am looking forward to the opportunity to join Royal Caribbean, a company that stands for excellence and innovation in the travel industry,” said Poulter. “Working with the IT team, we will help RCL develop and support the technologies necessary for running a global business in a digital world.”
