Carnival Corporation has promoted David Candib from director of business development to vice president of port and destination development and operations in an expansion of the Port and Destination Development Division.
Candib previously participated in a number of projects in the Caribbean, including the St. Maarten port expansion and Mystic Mountain attraction in Jamaica, and was responsible for commercial and retail tenant relations in Carnival’s three ports and destinations in the region.
