Royal Caribbean cuts 100 jobs, including Bauer's

By Tom Stieghorst
About 100 people in Royal Caribbean's Miami offices have been let go this week, and the departures include sales executive Lisa Bauer.

Royal Caribbean spokesman Rob Zeiger said Bauer will be leaving by the end of the week. She is currently executive vice president of global sales and marketing, but has held roles in numerous departments at the company over the course of her career.

"She was a terrifically effective executive," Zeiger said. "She made her mark wherever she went. We wish her well."

Zeiger said Bauer's role is being eliminated. Managers who now report to Bauer will report to Royal Caribbean International CEO Adam Goldstein.

The other layoffs were spread across disciplines and up and down the position ranks, Zeiger said.

"This isn't a signal of a shakeup or a restructuring. There are simply ways to make the company run more effectively," Zeiger said.
