Orient Lines’ President Resigns

December 6, 2000
Orient Lines president Deborah Natansohn -- the industry’s only female chief executive -- has resigned to join Cunard Lines Ltd. as senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing. In her new role, Natansohn, who presided over Orient since it was founded in 1992 and was officially named company president in 1998, will oversee sales and marketing for both Cunard and Seabourn; a high profile project includes the company’s much-publicized Queen Mary. Natansohn’s hiring, says a Cunard spokesman, “is a terrific coup for us.”

Over at Orient, Colin Veitch, the president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line, a sister company, will add helming responsibilities to his portfolio and an Orient Line spokeswoman says no major changes are forecast since, aside from Natansohn, the senior management team remains intact.
