Fred Olsen’s Mike Evans celebrates 25 years at the cruise line

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines’ Mike Evans has celebrated a milestone 25 years with the Suffolk-based company.

Evans, who is head of sales, joined the company in August 1992 and has fulfilled a number of roles in the sales department.

Previous roles include sales manager and regional manager for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

His career in the travel industry spans 40 years in total.

He said: “It is fantastic to be celebrating a quarter of a century with Fred Olsen Cruise Lines – the time has really flown by.

“I have seen how the company has changed and expanded over the years and I am really proud to be a part of that.

“I am particularly excited to be leading the team at this time, when we are looking to engage with the travel trade even more than we have done, and we have increased the number of new and innovative itineraries – including our extensive fly-cruise programme.”

Mike Rodwell, managing director, said: “We thank Mike for his continued commitment and passion for Fred Olsen and our unique style of cruising.

“As we have expanded as a cruise line over the years – from one ship to our current ocean fleet of four, plus the new Brabant river cruise vessel – so Mike has grown with us, and he has handled every new challenge professionally and with his usual enthusiasm.

“Mike enjoys great respect and an excellent reputation within the travel and cruise industry, and he is a popular and much-loved colleague and friend. We wish him many more happy and exciting years with Fred Olsen to come!”
