Lee Haslett will take on the role of Global Chief Commercial Officer of Celestyal Cruises next month.

He takes over from Leslie Peden, who has been with the company for more than five years, initially as Vice President, North America and more recently as CCO.

Lee was Vice President Global Sales for Virgin Atlantic until last December, when he left the company.

Joining on 20 February, he will report to Celestyal CEO Chris Theophilides, who said: “As we pivot Celestyal to reinforce our brand proposition of destination-rich, immersive travel experiences, we continue to develop our commercial team to meet new challenges.

 “I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to Leslie for his significant contributions to position Celestyal for future success. He has been an integral part of the company’s senior leadership and we wholeheartedly wish him all the best in his new endeavours.”

He added: “We look forward to making additional exciting announcements in the near future as we continue our journey of strengthening Celestyal’s position as the leading provider of the award-winning, multi-destination holiday experiences in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean that the company has fast become known for.”
