Cruise industry veteran Marilyn Conroy has joined Riviera
River Cruises as vice president of sales and marketing for North America.
Riviera is the U.K.'s largest European river cruise
operator. The company has a U.S. office in Fairfield, Connecticut.
Six months ago, Riviera River Cruises retained David Morris
International, where Conroy is executive vice president, to assist with growth
in North America. Because of travel agents' positive response to the product,
Conroy has taken on Riviera's sales and marketing on a full-time basis, Riviera
said. The company started selling cruises to U.S. customers in 2017.
Prior to forming David Morris with a partner in 2010, Conroy
had been vice president of sales at Silversea Cruises. A native of England,
Conroy started in the cruise business at Cunard Line, where she rose to become
vice president of sales before leaving for Crystal Cruises in 1995.
