CLIA names Ostebo as new president/CEO

Thomas Ostebo has been appointed president and CEO of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), effective July 6.

Selected by CLIA’s Global Executive Committee, Ostebo will oversee CLIA operations both domestically and internationally, working directly with his senior leadership team to execute the organization’s vision and work on behalf of CLIA members. He joins CLIA from the United States Coast Guard where he served as Rear Admiral. Most recently, Ostebo was Director of Strategic Management where he supported strategy and budget policy for the Coast Guard.

Among his priorities, he will continue to enhance the Travel Agency, Individual Travel Agent and Executive Partner member programs that were introduced in fall 2014, as well as the new Travel Agent professional development training.

The appointment follows the departure of Christine Duffy, former CLIA President and Chief Executive Officer, on Jan. 31.
