Atlas Ocean Voyages announces key appointments, including Eastern Canada Sales Director

FORT LAUDERDALE — Atlas Ocean Voyages has a new Regional Sales Director of Northeast, New England and Eastern Canada.

Anthony Iozzia has been appointed the role, joining the company’s Field Sales Team that comprises Paul Girouard, Senior Director of Sales, North America; Cathy Kusuma, Director of Sales, Eastern U.S. and Canada; and Michelle Rodriguez Suarez, Senior Manager, Preferred and International Accounts.

In addition, Atlas announced the following appointments: Colleen Rodriguez, Vice President of Marketing; Jacqueline Leyva, Senior Director of Guest Services, Reservations and Air-Sea; Robert Cao, Senior Director of Charters, Meetings and Incentives; and Oya Bekisoglu, Regional Sales Director of Central U.S.

All new appointments add more than 140 years of travel and cruise industry experience to Atlas, which launched in August 2021 with the 98-suite World Navigator.

“Atlas Ocean Voyages’ signature luxe-adventure style has quickly gained adopters and devotees throughout World Navigator’s first five months in operation,” said Alberto Aliberti, President of Atlas Ocean Voyages. “We are responding to our rapid growth by bringing on these new Atlas executives and their extensive experiences in small-ship, luxury cruising sector. Each will play a critical role in promoting and supporting our valued travel partners as well as augment Atlas’ administration and U.S.-based operations.”

World Navigator will cruise the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and Iceland, Greenland and The Arctic in summer 2022, as well as Central and South America in the fall. It will return to Antarctica for its winter 2022-23 season. Atlas’ second ship, World Traveller, will launch in November 2022, with three additional sister ships – World Seeker, World Adventurer and World Discoverer – joining the fleet through 2024.
