Silversea is weighing up how to fill its expedition sales manager position after Akvile Marozaite moved to an operations role within the company.

Marozaite became expedition operations manager today (September 6) and will report into Stefan Kredel, the line’s director of expeditions development and operations.

Connie Georgiou, the line’s UK sales director, said she will make a decision about Marozaite’s replacement in the coming days.

She said: “We do not know whether to go like-for-like or go a bit different at the moment.

“I am just having those discussions now and we are analysing what we need. It depends on what kind of person is out there.”

Georgiou praised Marozaite, who has worked in trade reservations, on board Silver Discoverer and in sales since joining Silversea in 2011.

“She is passionate about the destinations and expedition,” Georgiou said. “She brings the product alive with the trade.

“Becoming expeditions operations manager is the next step for her. I am glad that she is still with Silversea. She is just in an operations role, rather than a sales role.”

Silversea has a mixed fleet which contains both classic and expedition ships.

Next year, the line will launch two ships – Silver Origin and Silver Moon – as executive chairman Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio looks to fulfil his father’s dying wish of operating a fleet of at least 12 vessels.
