Silversea has appointed Roberto Bruzzone as the new Senior Vice President of Marine Operations (pictured).
Starting this month, he will report directly to Silversea‘s President and CEO, Roberto Martinoli, and will be responsible for the fleet’s marine and technical operations.
He will also oversee newbuilding and refitting activities, as well as handle the technical procurement and crew management functions, the company said.
With extensive experience in the shipbuilding industry and having held various positions at major international cruise lines in a career that has spanned almost 20 years, Bruzzone will play a key role in supporting the expansion of Silversea’s ultra-luxury fleet in the coming years.
Following a five-year period as Vice President of Technical Operations at a major cruise corporation—part of a 14-year employment at the same company—Bruzzone took the position of COO to oversee the company acting as the newbuilding division of another major cruise line.
He is a Member of both the Lloyd’s Register’s and RINA’s Technical Committee.
“We are delighted to welcome Roberto Bruzzone to our team,” said Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s President and CEO. “His wealth of expertise will bring great value to our cruise line, as we continue to grow our fleet for the benefit of our guests.”
