Seabourn has announced the appointment of Natalya Leahy as its new president.
Leahy, who has spent seven years with the Holland America Group, including as chief operating officer, takes over from Josh Leibowitz, who is leaving the brand to pursue new opportunities.
She will report to Holland America Line president Gus Antorcha.
Antorcha said: “Seabourn has earned a top position in the luxury and expedition cruising space, and Natalya’s expertise, background and proven track record in delivering results is ideal to build on that success.
“With her leadership and the introduction later this year of our second purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, I am confident in the future growth of Seabourn.
“Josh’s leadership in navigating the pause and return to service proved valuable for Seabourn’s future. We appreciate his contributions and wish him well.”
‘An honour to join Seabourn’
Leahy added: “It’s an honour to join the extraordinary Seabourn team and partners who take personal pride in curating transformative, enriching, one-of-a-kind Seabourn moments.
“We have built unmatched luxury experiences at sea that provide life expanding moments for our guests.
“I am excited to support and work with our trade partners as we continue to surprise and delight our guests in ways they would never imagine.”
The luxury line recently revealed that it will visit the Kimberley region in northern Australia for the first time in its history.
The voyages, on Seabourn Pursuit between June and August 2024, are part of the line’s wider 2024 and winter/spring 2025 expedition programmes.
