David Noyes, CEO of Carnival UK is to stand down from his role in July and will be replaced with Josh Weinstein as President of Carnival UK.
Overseeing the Cunard and P&O brands at their Carnival House headquarters in Southampton, Josh Weinstein will then report back to Stein Kruse, currently CEO of Holland America, whom is being promoted to Group Chief Executive of Holland America and Carnival UK.
Former Carnival UK CEO, David Dingle, will however remain as Chairman of Carnival UK.
Speaking to TTG Media, Arnold Donald was excited for the future of Carnival UK and was full of praise for both David Noyes and Josh Weinstein. He said:
“Some time ago, David Noyes advised me that he wished to step down as chief executive Carnival UK during 2017 to spend more time with his family. David has excelled in his time as chief executive of Carnival UK and has planned a smooth and effective transition. We greatly appreciate his leadership, his team spirit and the many important contributions he has made to our success.”
“In his current role, Josh Weinstein has been a strong contributor to the company’s successful results.I am confident he will do a great job in his new role and continue to build on our strong legacy of success in the UK.”
Speaking of Stein Kruse’s promotion, Donald added:
“Stein Kruse has done an exemplary job in leading the Holland America Group. The two groups will continue to be managed separately as they are today but will benefit from more closely aligned collaboration.”
Looking to the future, David Noyes is delighted to be leaving the company in such a healthy position. He said:
“I will be leaving Carnival UK as a thriving, profitable and market leading business. I know that with Josh at the helm, the company will continue to go from strength to strength as the UK cruise sector maintains its exceptional levels of growth.”
We wish David all the very best for the future.
