In this role, Freed will lead the committee which consists of senior leadership within the sales and marketing divisions of CLIA’s Cruise Line Members. The Trade Relations Committee works to empower travel agencies and agents to grow consumer, media and industry awareness of the merits of cruise travel and the cruise industry’s unwavering commitment to safety, security, health and sustainability.

 

“Vicki Freed wrote the book on trade engagement in the cruise industry and we are thrilled to have her leading our Trade Relations Committee,” said Charles Sylvia, vice president, membership and trade relations. “Vicki is recognized as a strong supporter of travel agencies and agents, and serving as TRC chair will elevate her ability to champion for the trade at the industry level.”

Prior to that, she served in various roles with Carnival Cruise Lines for 29 years, spending the last 15 as senior vice president of Sales & Marketing. During her tenure in the cruise industry, Freed has earned numerous awards for outstanding achievement in sales and marketing, including the esteemed Michelle Morgan Leadership Award, becoming the first cruise line executive to receive the honor.

 

Freed assumes the chairmanship from Ken Muskat, formally the executive vice president of sales, public relations, and guest services, MSC cruises, who left the committee in 2016.
