AmaWaterways has announced plans for the opening of a new sales and marketing office in the United Kingdom. The office, located in Guildford, Surrey, will officially open on September 1, and will be led by Stuart Perl.
Since 2008, AmaWaterways has been represented in the United Kingdom by Fred. Olsen Travel, under the leadership of Managing Director Steve Williams, who will continue to work very closely with AmaWaterways as a preferred travel partner once the new office opens, AmaWaterways said.
Stuart Perl will serve as managing director of the new UK office. In this new position, Perl will oversee all of AmaWaterways’ UK and Europe sales and marketing efforts. Previously, Perl served as marketing director for Cunard Line, managing director for Peter Deilmann River & Ocean Cruises and, most recently, ran his own company as UK representative for river cruise lines selling groups and charters through the UK travel trade.
