NCLH reshuffles Asia-Pacific ops

NORWEGIAN Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) has restructured its Asia Pacific operations, expanding the role of Steve Odell, its senior vice president and managing director for the Asia Pacific region, to include the China market.

Under the changes, Alex (Yucheng) Xiang has assumed the position of managing director of NCLH’s China operations, becoming the line’s first senior officer in the region and David Herrera, who established the company’s offices in Shanghai and Beijing in 2015, has relocated back to Miami.

Previously president of China operations based in Shanghai, Herrera has made the move to senior VP of strategy and corporate development.

NCLH said the reorganisation would “enable it to further leverage the extensive corporate resources and expertise already in place in the region and continue to strengthen its presence in the Chinese cruise market”.
