Mike Julius has been promoted to senior managing director of U.S. trade sales for Carnival Cruise Lines.
An accomplished member of the Carnival sales team for 24 years, Julius most recently served as managing director of U.S. trade sales. In his new role, he will oversee Carnival’s U.S. sales force and be responsible for trade support, including training and development, as well as business development growth. He will continue to report to Carnival’s Vice President of Worldwide Sales Joni Rein.
“Many things have changed in the travel industry over the years, but two things haven’t changed for me – my passion for working with travel agents and my enthusiasm for the Carnival brand,” said Julius.
Julius began his career with Carnival in 1989 as business development manager for the northern Midwest region. Various promotions followed thereafter, including director and vice president of sales for the central U.S. region, prior to taking on his most recent role as managing director of U.S. sales. Julius began his professional career in the travel industry, spending 11 years at AAA Iowa Travel & Transport as a leisure travel specialist.
