Swan Hellenic has named Joe Maloney as its new vice-president of sales for North America.
Maloney will report to Alfredo Spadon, Swan Hellenic’s senior vice-president of global sales and marketing.
Maloney brings Swan Hellenic over 20 years of C-Suite cruise and travel industry experience, most recently as assistant vice president, travel product, at The Auto Club Group, and as vice-president, USA sales and marketing, at Scenic USA.
Prior to this, he spent a decade in similarly senior roles at The Travel Corporation. Throughout this time, his outstanding contributions to driving sales and customer satisfaction have been recognized with multiple awards.
“We’re delighted to welcome Joe Maloney to our North America Team. Joe is a powerhouse professional with strong strategic vision. But, above all, he truly appreciates the unique experiences Swan Hellenic offers sophisticated modern cruise-goers with a thirst for authentic exploration and discovery. He’s a perfect fit for the pioneering spirit and high service standards that have always distinguished Swan Hellenic. Joe has taken over from Gordon Dirker, who I’d like to take this opportunity to thank for his valued work," stated Spadon.
“I’m really excited to join such an iconic high-end brand,” noted Maloney. “Swan Hellenic is unique in offering cultural expedition cruises. And now to the most amazing locations across all 7 continents on three elegantly indulgent high-class ships."
