Regent Seven Seas Cruises promotes sales executives

Regent Seven Seas Cruises promoted two longtime executives to round out its reorganized sales and marketing team. 

Shawn Tubman was named senior vice president of sales after spending the past 11 years as the vice president of strategic and national accounts. 

In his new role, Tubman is responsible for leading the North American sales strategy, overseeing business development and managing all sales divisions. He will will report directly to Andrea DeMarco, who earlier this month was appointed Regent’s chief sales and marketing officer. 

Shemain Grasso replaced Tubman as vice president of strategic and national accounts. She has been with Regent for 20 years, most recently as senior director of national accounts.

The sales team restructuring started when Randall Soy, Regent’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, left the cruise line at the end of July after 30 years. 

Regent’s sister brands at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings also saw some major changes to sales teams this summer. James Rodriguez, Oceania Cruises’ executive vice president of sales and marketing, stepped down at the end of July after 19 years. In early June, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief sales officer Katina Athanasiou left her post. She is staying on as a consultant through November.
