Steve Mclaughlin returns to expedition cruise sector with Aurora.
Aurora Expeditions has just announced the appointment of cruise industry veteran Steve Mclaughlin as its new Director of Sales Asia-Pacific.
Mclaughlin has held a range of roles in the sector over his 30-year-plus career, including sales positions with Cruiseco, Orion Expedition Cruises, Lindblad Expeditions, Ponant and Oceania Cruises, where he departed in a restructure last year.
Aurora CEO Monique Ponfoort said she was thrilled to be working with Mclaughlin again, “and that he has returned to his true passion of expedition cruising to join us”.
Ponfoort confirmed that Mclaughlin would take over from Di Schinella, who is moving to a new role outside the industry after 3.5 years of dedication and “creating long-lasting relationships with our trade partners”.
