Seabourn appoints Natalya Leahy as president

Leahy’s seven years with Holland America Group included the operational oversight of Seabourn

Seabourn has announced the appointment of Natalya Leahy as its new president.

Leahy succeeds Josh Leibowitz, who is leaving the brand to pursue new opportunities. Leahy will report to Gus Antorcha, president of Holland America Line.

Most recently, Leahy held the role of chief operating officer for Holland America Group overseeing Princess, Holland America Line, Seabourn, P&O Australia and land operations. 

Before working in the cruise industry, she held various leadership roles with Procter & Gamble and Coca-Cola, supporting iconic brands and new product launches.


Commenting on the appointment, Antorcha said: “Seabourn has earned a top position in the luxury and expedition cruising space, and Natalya’s expertise, background and proven track record in delivering results is ideal to build on that success.

“With her leadership, and the introduction later this year of our second purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, I'm confident in the future growth of Seabourn.”

“We have built unmatched luxury experiences at sea that provide life-expanding moments for our guests. I'm excited to support and work with our trade partners as we continue to surprise and delight our guests in ways they would never imagine.”
