Since September 2017, John McGlade has been overseeing North American operations for CroisiEurope Cruises as general manager — USA & Canada. He’s focused on continued growth and expansion in North America and manages the company’s U.S. call center, national sales team and public relations agency.
In the year since John took on this role, CroisiEurope continues to expand, making McGlade’s role to draw in U.S. and Canadian travelers even more crucial. The river line has launched new ships on Africa’s Lake Kariba and the Mekong, Seine, Elbe and the Rhone rivers. Croisi-Europe also recently announced the addition of a fourth ship joining the Rhone fleet in April 2019, complimented by a new culinary-focused itinerary.
With almost 40 years in the travel industry, McGlade brings diverse management experience to the North American operation. Currently serving on the board of the National Tour Association, he previously spent many years with TWA and as an inbound tour operator in Portugal. He’s been working with CroisiEurope since 2001, and most recently served as vice president for the line in the U.S. and Canada. He’s definitely one to watch.
