SeaDream Yacht Club has recruited cruise industry executive Jos Dewing to build the cruise line’s UK business and develop relationships with trade partners.

Dewing will be based in London and report to Jannicke Rognstad, sales vice-president at SeaDream.

He has more than 15 years of experience in the industry, and most recently he was global managing director of Voyages to Antiquity, which ceased operations in October 2019.

Dewing is also owner of specialist cruise technology and marketing company CruiseTech, and was managing director of luxury cruise specialist The Cruise Line.

Rognstad said: “Jos has demonstrated tactical and strategic business leadership throughout his extensive career and a deep understanding of the luxury travel sector.”

Dewing added: “I developed my passion and knowledge for the SeaDream product during my work at The Cruise Line.

“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.”

His job title is yet to be decided but he will lead the UK strategy.
