Carnival’s retired President, Bob Dickinson, has been hired by Carnival Corporation as a special consultant. Dickinson’s re-entrance to Carnival Corporation comes at a time of “choppy waters” with the general public. Some cruise experts have suggested that Dickinson’s new involvement in Carnival Corporation will help re-boost Carnival’s public image and restore trust with the general cruising public.
Carnival elaborates on Dickinson’s involvement in a statement sent to Cruise Currents:
“Carnival Corporation & plc has entered in a consulting agreement with Bob Dickinson, retired president and CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines who also served on Carnival Corporation & plc’s board of directors.
Dickinson initially will focus on corporate-wide marketing and distribution strategies for Carnival Corporation & plc’s various cruise brands, with particular emphasis on the North American market. He will report to Carnival Corporation & plc’s Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer Howard Frank.
Dickinson retired from Carnival Cruise Lines in 2007 following a 35-year career with the company. He also served on Carnival Corporation & plc’s board of directors from 1987 until April of this year.”
