Haimark Names Hans Rood President

Haimark has named Hans Rood president to oversee all aspects of its rapidly developing small ship cruise brands.

“Hans has served in key executive management positions at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Royal Caribbean, Cunard/Seabourn, Holland America, Hurtigruten, and FleetPro passenger ship management. His strong management, travel industry and cruise orientation, coupled with his award-winning development of sales strategies, branding and global sales and marketing efforts, make him uniquely suited to ensure the rapid growth of our distinctive Haimark river and ocean cruise programs in the Far East, Amazon, Great Lakes and Central and South America,” said Tom Markwell, Managing Partner, Sales & Marketing, on behalf of the Haimark ownership team.

The combined fleet of Haimark exceeds nine river and ocean ships, each accommodating a maximum of just 24 up to 210 guests. These ships sail under various brands, with Haimark managing the highest quality brand standards.

The company will launch three new ships in May, September and October.
