Natalya Leahy Replaces Josh Leibowitz as President of Seabournby Dori Saltzman /
Effective immediately Natalya Leahy has replaced Josh Leibowitz as president of Seabourn. Leahy most recently served as COO for Holland America Group, which included having operational oversight of Seabourn.
Like Leibowitz before her, she will report to Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line.
"Seabourn has earned a top position in the luxury and expedition cruising space, and Natalya's expertise, background and proven track record in delivering results is ideal to build on that success," Antorcha said. "With her leadership and the introduction later this year of our second purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, I am confident in the future growth of Seabourn."
"It's an honor to join the extraordinary Seabourn team and partners who take personal pride in curating transformative, enriching, one-of-a-kind Seabourn moments," Leahy said. "I am excited to support and work with our trade partners as we continue to surprise and delight our guests in ways they would never imagine."
According to the line, Leibowitz left the brand to pursue new opportunities. He was appointed president of Seabourn in June 2020 in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and oversaw the line's successful return to service. He previously served three years as senior vice president head of North America for Cunard, as well as seven years as chief strategy officer for Carnival Corp.
"Josh's leadership in navigating the pause and return to service proved valuable for Seabourn's future," Antorcha said. "We appreciate his contributions and wish him well."
