Celestyal has announced the appointment of two senior members to its commercial team.
Tobias Klitsch joins as vice-president of global market development while Beth Hulett has been named global market development manager.
Klitsch, who has held senior positions within the travel industry for 15 years, will design and execute a commercial strategy to “deliver our vision of being brilliant to do business with”, Celestyal said.
He will also provide analytical insight and partner with sales leaders to create market-appropriate strategies to drive Celestyal’s growth plans. He reports directly to Celestyal’s chief commercial officer, Lee Haslett.
‘Exciting time’ for Celestyal
Meanwhile, Hulett joins with more than eight years’ experience in the cruise industry, most recently at Virgin Voyages, where she worked with key UK partners to drive sales in her role as sales manager.
At Celestyal, Hulett will support Klitsch in delivering the commercial strategy to deliver value to trade partners.
She will also support the field-based account team in identifying opportunities.
Haslett said: “I am delighted to welcome Tobias and Beth to Celestyal.
“They join at an exciting time, with the recent launch of Celestyal Holidays, our dedicated trade packaging solution in partnership with Aviate, and the highly-anticipated debut of our new ship, Celestyal Journey (pictured), in September.
“Both Tobias and Beth have a strong track record of delivering commercial value and strategic growth, which will prove invaluable as we intensify our efforts and invest in substantially broadening Celestyal’s presence in key markets.”
