P&O Cruises has confirmed vice-president sales and marketing Alex Delamere-White will be leaving the company later this year to take up a new role as chief commercial officer at developer McCarthy Stone.
Former TTG 30 Under 30 member Delamere-White has been with Carnival UK for more than 12 years in a variety of sales, distribution and marketing roles with Princess Cruises, Cunard and latterly, P&O Cruises.
P&O Cruises president Paul Ludlow said: “We are very grateful for the contribution Alex has made in his position and throughout his tenure with the business.
“He has been instrumental in many successful campaigns as well as the implementation of the Shine Rewards Club for agents and he has played a key role in the leadership team.
“We wish him well in his future career.”
Delamere-White’s replacement will be announced in due course, P&O said.
In his new role Delamere-White will be responsible for all aspects for the sales and marketing activity of McCarthy Stone, which is also a manager of retirement communities.
"I feel very privileged to have spent almost 13 years at Carnival UK, I will be sad to leave but I am excited to be moving on to a new challenge in a different sector," he told TTG. "I will be excited to watch the success I know our market leading cruise brands will have in the future, as the cruise sector returns stronger than ever."
Delamere-White will join McCarthy Stone in early summer 2021.
