Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the appointment of Nicky Foot as business development director, UK & Ireland.
Foot joins the growing team based in Southampton, reporting to Nick Wilkinson, managing director for Norwegian in the UK & Ireland and MEA.
The appointment will further strengthen the business development function at a time of growth, following the one-year anniversary of Premium All Inclusive, an increased capacity in ex-UK sailings and the launch of Norwegian Bliss in April.
Foot said: “I’m excited to be joining Norwegian and driving forward the business at such an exciting and pivotal time.
“Norwegian is an innovative and contemporary brand and I look forward to working with Nick and the business development team to help drive greater success.”
Foot has over 30 years of sales and travel experience, most recently as a director at Groupon and before that as the UK regional sales director at Living Social Escapes.
Previous to these roles, she spent a number of years working for the marine division at TUI working for Sunsail, The Moorings and Le-Boat.
Wilkinson added: “I’m thrilled to welcome Nicky to the team at Norwegian.
“Her extensive experience and strategic focus will ensure we continue to grow our UK and Ireland markets at a time when we are growing our fleet, with Norwegian Encore coming in 2019.”
