Allan Brooks, a longtime Royal Caribbean International (RCI) team member, will take over as Celebrity Cruises’ director of market sales, Canada, replacing Ken Brooks, who is retiring from the position on Mar. 31.
Brooks, who was born and raised in Montreal, has worked with RCI for over 20 years, including onboard ships, in corporate headquarters, and in field sales.
“Celebrity Cruises is the best kept secret in the cruise industry, but that secret is getting out and people are taking notice,” Brooks said in a statement. “Our continued success comes from partnerships with our amazing travel advisors and we couldn’t do it without them.”
Brooks rounds out a Canadian sales team for Celebrity that includes Strategic Market Manager Brenda Yeomans; Regional Marketing Manager Jennifer Barker; Market Sales Managers Chad Kowalenko, Sandra Pennington, Maxine Gundermann, Mathieu Robert, and Vanessa Brousseau; and VP of North American Sales Keith Lane.
