Crystal reports that the company’s longtime chief financial officer, Donald Mason, will be leaving the company as of April 1. He will join a new role in a company outside the cruise industry, the luxury travel company said. 

Mason has served as Crystal’s chief financial officer since 2015, working alongside Crystal executives and Crystal’s parent company, Genting Hong Kong, to manage the company’s growing portfolio. His career in the travel and cruise industry dates back to 2002.

In a written statement Crystal president and CEO Tom Wolber said that Mason has been integral to the company’s ongoing success, including navigating its ongoing expansion. Over the past few years the company has grown from luxury ocean ships to encompass river cruising, via its Crystal River Cruises brand, as well as luxury yachts with its Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises brand. It is also planning the launch of additional luxury ocean ships in a new “Diamond Class.”
