SeaDream Yacht Club has appointed former Voyages to Antiquity managing director Jos Dewing to grow sales in the UK.
Dewing will be tasked with developing relationships with UK travel agencies in his new role with SeaDream. He will be based in London and report to SeaDream’s vice-president of sales Jannicke Rognstad.
“We are excited to implement Dewing’s ideas to our UK strategy,” said Rognstad. “He has demonstrated tactical and strategic business leadership throughout his extensive career and a deep understanding of the luxury travel sector.
“We are certain he will be a valuable addition to the SeaDream team.”
Dewing was previously managing director of The Cruise Line and also owner of cruise technology and marketing firm CruiseTech.
“I developed my passion and knowledge for the SeaDream product during my work at The Cruise Line,” said Dewing.
“SeaDream sets the industry standard for luxury at sea, and I look forward to working closely with the travel trade to develop and maximise sales opportunities for the important UK market, which has seen significant growth over the past five years.”
Dewing will work alongside UK sales director Mark Schmitt, who he said had “done a great job in recent years" to develop SeaDream’s UK business.
