Paul Gauguin Cruises, operator of the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, the m/s Paul Gauguin, proudly appoints Rick Lozano as Director of Sales, Northwest Region.

“I am pleased to announce the appointment of Rick Lozano to Director of Sales for the Northwest Region,” said Diane Moore, President of Paul Gauguin Cruises. “Rick brings extensive knowledge and experience, and will be a valuable addition to Paul Gauguin Cruises.”

With a travel industry career spanning more than 30 years, Rick brings a depth of industry knowledge and experience in the Western United States to his position. He started his career in Los Angeles with American Airlines, where he rose to the position of Manager of Passenger Sales Santa Barbara/Bakersfield. In 1996, he became the Western Region Sales Manager for Air Jamaica, responsible for all sales and marketing activities in 13 Western States. In September 2009, he began collaborating with various luxury lines to develop group sales with wine clubs and affinity groups. Lozano’s experience and dedication illustrates a commitment to travel shared by Paul Gauguin Cruises.

A native Californian, Rick lives in Santa Barbara County with his wife and their two children. An avid traveler, he also loves golf, cooking, and visiting family and friends—many of whom eagerly return the visit to California wine country! He has traveled extensively and took his first cruise with Sitmar Cruises back in the ’70s to a newly developing Cabo San Lucas. Rick is very much looking forward to developing a relationship with Paul Gauguin Cruisers, and becoming a valued member of the Paul Gauguin family.
