Ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has recently promoted Teresa Haughey to the role of director, hotel services for hotel operations and Daniel Putzhammer to director, food & beverage operations. The pair brings more than 20 years of collective experience within the Seabourn brand to leadership positions. Haughey is based in Seabourn's U.K. offices, and Putzhammer is based in Seattle. Both report directly to Gerard Mosslinger, vice president of hotel operations at Seabourn.

Haughey first joined Seabourn as Chief Purser in 2007, making her way to become Seabourn's first female hotel director. In 2014, she transferred to the Seattle Hotel Operations team, overseeing efforts to enhance the Housekeeping, Guest Services, and Purser departments. In her new position, her duties include oversight of housekeeping, guest services and administration, as well as working closely with human resources to enhance crew programs.

Putzhammer started his career in hospitality on Lake Chiemsee Bavaria, Germany, where he worked in numerous bars, restaurants and hotels while getting his degree in business administration. He joined the crew on Seabourn Legend in 2005 as a bar waiter. After working through the ranks, he was promoted to hotel director on Seabourn Pride in 2010. He has worked on all Seabourn ships since then, including most recently as hotel director when Seabourn Encore launched in December 2016. In his new position, his duties include responsibility for culinary, bar and restaurant operations, as well as playing a pivotal role in the management of the Thomas Keller partnership in conjunction with the culinary ambassador.
