SEATTLE — Windstar Cruises is doubling down on its commitment to the agent community by announcing new updates to its sales team.
Dianna Rom has been promoted from Regional Sales Manager to Director of Field Sales and will be leading the team’s sales support of travel agency-sourced business.
Richard Terek and Chad Smith from the reservations vacation planning team have joined the sales team as Business Development Representatives, reporting to Rom. Terek has been with Windstar for nearly seven years, while Smith joined Windstar in 2020 after six years at Royal Caribbean. Both will work together with Regional Sales Managers, with their primary focus being travel agencies and travel advisors ‘new to Windstar’ as well as smaller accounts. The field-based Regional Sales Managers will focus more on ongoing support of Windstar’s larger accounts. In addition, Caron Clay has been hired as a new Regional Sales Manager, based in Los Angeles and covering the Western United States.
This year, Windstar’s newly transformed, all-suite, 312-person motorized yachts, Star Breeze, Sar Legend and Star Pride, along with three sailing yachts, will travel to destinations such as Europe, Tahiti and the Caribbean. The first cruise embarks from St. Maarten starting June 19, 2021 aboard the Star Breeze.
