Royal Caribbean names Stuart Leven managing director of UK & Ireland


Royal Caribbean has named Stuart Leven the new United Kingdom and Ireland managing director.

Prior to being hired by Royal Caribbean, Leven worked in the travel industry including InterContinental Hotel Group, Thistle and Guoman Hotels, Choice Hotels Europe and KLM. He has been working in a management consultancy for the past five years.

Leven will work in the newly created role that came about earlier this summer when Royal Caribbean decided to split up its Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises operations into seperate entities.

In addition to Leven's hiring, Dominic Paul will take on an expanded role as vice president and will report directly to Royal Caribbean CEO Adam Goldstein.  Paul had been in charge of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  He will now also be in charge of Latin America, Asia Pacific and the Caribbean.
