AmaWaterways promotes Pinelo and Cook to Directors of National Accounts

CALABASAS, CA — AmaWaterways has promoted Alex Pinelo and Donna Cook to directors of national accounts, a move that comes during a period of “outstanding growth and expansion” across all markets, says the company.

During Pinelo’s time at AmaWaterways, he has overseen development of new Latin American markets and expanded existing relationships with the travel agent community throughout the region.

Cook joined AmaWaterways in September 2017 after spending 14 years with Crystal Cruises as a senior executive in sales and operations. In her previous role as director of strategic initiatives for AmaWaterways, Cook oversaw new projects in key areas of revenue management and sales reporting.

Both executives will work closely with the company’s 23 business development managers and sales coordinators across Canada and the U.S. to develop strategic sales and marketing programs with key national account partners.

“AmaWaterways places tremendous value on the close relationships we have built with our national account partners., We are thrilled that Alex and Donna have taken on these roles and, along with their existing passion for our business, will bring their exceptional leadership skills to further develop this important segment of our network,” said Gary Murphy, co-owner and vice president of sales.

The year ahead looks to be a banner one for AmaWaterways, with the debut of its newest vessel, AmaLea. In 2019, the company will welcome its largest fleet expansion since its launch, with the addition of three new ships: AmaMagna, AmaMora, and AmaDouro.
