The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has announced that Julie Green will serve as vice president of strategic communications for Europe.
Green most recently served as the head of corporate communications for the consulting firm WSP UK and previously served as global head of communications for Bechtel Corporation’s infrastructure business, where she spent more than a decade managing targeted communications and marketing initiatives on behalf of the global engineering and construction company.
“Further strengthening our communications capabilities in Europe is essential to supporting our members as they deepen the industry’s commitment and leadership in responsible tourism,” says Kelly Craighead, CLIA president and CEO. “Julie has the experience and qualifications to guide us into this new and exciting era, and ultimately to help us share the incredible stories of the cruise industry with our partners and stakeholders in Europe and beyond. We are thrilled to welcome her to our team.”
Green will lead CLIA’s strategic communications efforts in Europe, beginning her tenure in London and transition to CLIA’s office in Brussels from August 2020.
“I feel immensely privileged to be appointed to this position at such an exciting time for the cruise industry, which is going from strength to strength,” says Green. “The cruise industry has an incredibly positive story to share, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the CLIA members and partners, and to working together with our stakeholders across Europe.”
The association also announced that it has established the soon-to-be-filled position of director general to enhance advocacy on behalf of its global cruise line members.
