Operator of the highest-rated and longest continually-sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific, Paul Gauguin Cruises (PGC) has joined forces with David Morris International (DMI) to boost worldwide sales & distribution efforts, helping to expand the Tahitian product’s reach internationally.
“The team at David Morris International excels in selling cruise-based experiential travel, and so it was only a natural next step for us to partner with them to expand our market share,” said David A. Giersdorf, President and CEO of Paul Gauguin Cruises. “We are proud to have DMI representing us and look forward to continued growth in the years to come.”
As a first order of business, PGC has called on DMI to help grow and strengthen their U.S.-based sales force, mixing new talent with seasoned brand ambassadors. PGC already has an impressive sales team in place – Jim Applebaum, Director of Sales for the Southeastern Region, Liz Coleman, Director of Sales for the Northeastern Region, and Michael Beale, Director of Charter & Incentive Sales – and DMI recently identified top talent to join the PGC sales team, with the candidates to be announced shortly.
In addition to consulting on new talent, DMI will provide the luxury cruise brand with international sales management services, relying on their years of experience to bolster the following arenas: National Accounts, Key Accounts, Groups, Seminars & Training, Conferences & Events, International General Sales Agents, and Charter & Inventive support.
