NLG eliminates 50 positions in its corporate offices

WOBURN, Mass. -- Online vacation packager and cruise seller NLG eliminated about 50 positions, primarily in its corporate office here, last week.

At the same time, a spokeswoman said, the company started hiring for about 250 sales and service-related jobs.

"We've seen clearly that there's a need to realign our capital and employee resources to aggressively grow our cruise business," the spokeswoman said. "The way to do that is to focus on -- the sales and service staff, really to support the increased sales call volume."

The layoffs, which account for about 4% of all jobs company wide, came a week after NLG's co-CEO Brad Gerstner resigned to move to an online search start-up company.

NLG owns cruise retail brands CruisesOnly, CruiseOne and Cruises Inc.
