Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 28 July 2008

Christian Sauleau has rejoined Silversea Cruises as executive vice president of fleet operations, overseeing marine, technical, hotel, crewing, entertainment and land programmes. He will report to the company's CEO, Amerigo Perasso.

Sauleau was the line's senior vice president of operations in the mid-1990s, and was instrumental in developing the company's reputation for personalised service and hospitality. He will be based in Silverseas Fort Lauderdale office.

Sauleau was recently the executive vice president of operations at Regent Seven Seas Cruises, where he played an integral role in the expansion of their fleet, overseeing construction of new vessels. His career also includes several years at Royal Viking Line in both shipboard and shoreside capacities. As vice president of hotel operations at Royal Viking Line, he supervised purchasing, entertainment, shore programmes and meet-and-greet services.

A native of France, Sauleau attended hotel management school in Paris. He holds a degree in international business from the University of Miami and was enrolled in their MBA program. He has also guest lectured at Cornell University.

"We are very pleased to welcome Christian back," said Perasso. "He is dedicated to the highest standards of quality and service excellence, and will bring more than three decades of experience in the hospitality and cruise industries to our team. His appointment will reinforce our commitment to strengthening our leadership position in the ultra-luxury cruise segment as we continue to grow and expand our fleet."

The company also expects to finalise a management agreement shortly with V. Ships for technical management (including newbuild supervision), marine operations and crew management services. It is anticipated that a number of operations employees in Silversea's Monaco office will move to V. Ships as a result of the reorganization.

In conjunction with these organizational changes, Rocco Auteri, senior vice president of fleet operations, and Silvio Rossi, vice president of hotel operations, are leaving Silversea.
