Cruise.co.uk has promoted Tony Andrews to the role of managing director.
Andrews joined Cruise.co.uk in 2000, moving to their sales team in 2003.
After being named the company’s top seller from 2008 to 2013, he moved to the product team in 2013 and was promoted to product and commercial director, and then deputy MD in 2019.
As MD, he will spearhead the next phase of Cruise.co.uk’s growth in the UK market, including the continued expansion of its online-only Seascanner brand.
He will also lead Above and Beyond Luxury Cruises, the ultra-luxury holiday brand launched last month.
The agency will offer customers ultra-luxury holidays, with a “concierge service to match”, a statement said.
In addition, Andrews will oversee the continued development of the packaging and tour operating element of Cruise.co.uk.
Cruise.co.uk going to the ‘next level’
Andrews said: “I’m honoured to accept this role and am looking forward to continuing to direct and advise our fantastic team.
“I’ve enjoyed every role and every opportunity at Cruise.co.uk and can’t wait to take the business and our sister brands to the next level.”
Group CEO Chris Gardner added: “Tony has been critical to the success of Cruise.co.uk over many years.
“As MD of the business, I’m confident we will continue to go from strength to strength under his guidance and leadership.”
