Viveca Jerrestam (44) will join Norwegian Cruise Lines as its new Business Development Manager for Sweden and Finland on August 6, 2018. Jerrestam, who has been working in the tourism industry for over 20 years, replaces Andreas Söderqvist, who left the international cruise line of his own accord.
The Scandinavian markets including Finland are becoming increasingly important for Norwegian Cruise Line in Europe and therefore these markets will be further strengthened and expanded in the future. Viveca Jerrestam is now reinforcing the Business Development Team in Sweden and Finland alongside Tom-Andre Baraas (32), who has been working as Business Development Manager for Norway, Denmark and Iceland since 2013. Both report into Jürgen Stille, Senior Director of Business Development Continental Europe.
– I am delighted that with Viveca we now have an extremely experienced team member for our Business Development Team, says Stille.
– She knows the Scandinavian markets and Finland very well and has built up a broad network throughout her career. I am convinced that she will successfully fulfil her role at Norwegian Cruise Line, with great enthusiasm and dedication, to drive our growth in Sweden and Finland.”
Viveca Jerrestam joined Norwegian Cruise Line from American Express Travel & Lifestyle (TLS), where she most recently served as Team Lead Specialist & Process Analyst for Sweden and Finland. She was responsible for, amongst other, the contract design and activities in the field of cruising.
