Bob Binder Named President and CEO of Oceania Cruises

oceania cruisesOceania Cruises has named four new members to its executive team following the appointment of Bob Binder to the position of president and CEO at the line. That move was part of parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holding’s (NCLH) decision to make changes to the leadership of a number of its cruise brands, including Norwegian Cruise Line and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. 

In tandem with Binder’s appointment, the line has named Todd Brown vice president of e-commerce, Michael von Wittenau regional sales and marketing director, Kari Roach regional sales and marketing director, and Tim Rubacky head of public relations. 

Binder also serves as vice chairman of Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, a role he has held since 2011. Prior to that, Binder served as president of the Oceania Cruises brand, which he co-founded with Frank Del Rio. During his tenure from 2003 to 2011, Binder played a key role in the development and design of the new Oceania-class ships Marina and Riviera along with new culinary and restaurant concepts for the line.
