Atlas Ocean Voyages, the new small ship luxury cruise line, announced on Monday that it was adding six additional sales directors to its team ahead of its 2021 launch.
Atlas is bringing aboard Cathy Kusuma as regional sales director for the eastern U.S., Rolf Logan as regional sales director for the central U.S., Anthony Cooper regional sales director for the western U.S., and Eric Bacon as regional sales director for Canada.
Atlas also announced that Alyssa Logan has assumed the role of director of charter and incentive sales, Lisette Martinez Rusian will now serve as director of sales and marketing operations, and Michelle Rodriguez-Suarez will now serve as virtual sales manager.
Atlas said the moves were made “in response to the great, positive interest from the travel advisor community and the increasing recognition of Atlas’ distinctive luxe-adventure expeditions among travelers.”
The line also said that the sales team now has 160 years of collective experience with cruise and travel companies such as American Express Travel, Azamara, Celebrity Cruises, Cruise Planners, Hurtigruten, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International, Seabourn Cruise Line, and more.
“We are very happy to welcome the new sales executives to the Atlas Ocean Voyages Sales Team,” said Vice President of Sales and Trade Partnerships Brandon Townsley. “They bring to Atlas their immense expertise as well as their understanding of the market and the needs of hardworking travel advisors.”
Atlas, which offers advisors 15% commission on all-inclusive fares, is continuing to offer travel advisors a $750 or $500 gift card immediately for each deposited booking through its GET PAID NOW incentive program.
