CLIA strengthens European focus

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the leading voice for the global cruise industry, announced it would be growing its European presence with the addition of Julie Green as vice president of strategic communications and the establishment of the soon-to-be-filled position of director general.

Green joins CLIA with extensive experience in corporate and policy communications, serving most recently as the head of corporate communications for leading consulting firm WSP UK.

“Further strengthening our communications capabilities in Europe is essential to supporting our members as they deepen the industry’s commitment and leadership in responsible tourism,” said Kelly Craighead, president and CEO of CLIA. “She has the experience and qualifications to guide us into this new and exciting era, and ultimately to help us share the incredible stories of the cruise industry with our partners and stakeholders in Europe and beyond.”

In her new role, Green will lead CLIA’s strategic communications efforts in Europe. She will begin her tenure in London and transition to CLIA’s office in Brussels beginning August 2020.
