Tom Ostebo has only been president and CEO of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) since July 6, 2015, but now he is stepping down immediately because of personal reasons.
He was appointed after Christine Duffy left the organization this past January. CLIA used the services of the executive search firm Heidrick & Sturggles to find a new president.
Cindy D'Aoust the executive vice president of membership and operations will assume the president and CEO role temporarily. She will oversee the management of global operations and the CLIA leadership teams until CLIA appoints a new leader.
