Seattle-based Un-Cruise Adventures announced today the addition of John Kreilkamp to its sales team. Kreilkamp joins the adventure cruise line in a newly created position of Group and Charter Business Development Director.
In his new role, Kreilkamp will focus on growing the lines’ full ship charter and group business for its eight vessels carrying 22-88 guests. An Alaska resident, Kreilkamp will split his time between Seattle headquarters and his home in Anchorage and service accounts nationwide.
Kreilkamp has 25 years of sales and operations experience in the travel industry from his time at former small ship cruise line Cruise West. His last position there was vice president of Alaska land operations. Most recently, Kreilkamp worked in sales and customer relations with Alaska’s General Communications Inc.
“Our smaller vessels are perfectly suited for charters and groups and John’s knowledge of the small ship industry will be key for growing this part of our business,” said Tim Jacox, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “The bonding experience that happens on our trips—from family groups to organizations—is exceptional, and we expect to increase this portion of our business significantly with John’s help.”
