Princess Cruises has promoted Sarah Jane Walker to sales manager for the academy team and regional business.
Walker’s current role is Princess UK’s academy programme manager. She has worked for Carnival UK for seven years, and was previously a regional business manager. She will replace Shane Riley when he moves over to sister brands P&O Cruises and Cunard.
Walker will start the new position on February 22, reporting into Princess UK’s head of sales, Rachel Poultney. Walker will lead a team of six.
Poultney said: “Sarah Jane has been an asset to Princess Cruises over the last three years and I couldn’t be more pleased that she is taking on this role.
“Her experience as a regional business manager means she couldn’t be better placed to be taking on the management of our fantastic academy team, developing a strategy that ensures Princess is the easiest cruise line for agents to do business with.”
Walker said: “Having been regional business manager, and most recently being dedicated to agent training as academy programme manager, I am delighted to have been appointed to this role.
“The academy team will continue our commitment to engaging, educating and motivating agent partners through a variety of platforms and I can’t wait to get started.”
Princess Cruises will be recruiting for Walker’s previous role.
