Pam Conover, the former CEO of Seabourn and SeaDream Yacht Club, on March 3 officially assumes her new role as president and CEO of The World, Residences at Sea.
She replaces Tom McAlpin, who left The World to become CEO of Richard Branson’s start-up Virgin Cruises.
The World is a ship with residences privately owned by 130 families.
“I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to lead the management team of this unique ship,” Conover said. “While on board recently in the Maldives, I was very impressed with the ship, including its maintenance, the quality of the food, the service and most of all the staff. The World is truly one of a kind with an original concept that remains unmatched. It’s the only ship afloat offering an exclusive lifestyle at sea where residents can sail to incredible destinations around the globe from the comfort of home. I’m looking forward to joining the team.”
Conover was CEO of SeaDream Yacht Club from January through December 2013. Before that, she spent many years at several Carnival Corp. brands. She was president and CEO for Seabourn from November 2006 to March 2011 and then special advisor and brand ambassador for the luxury line from March 2011 to December 2012.
She was senior vice president of shared services for Carnival Corp. from September 2004 through November 2006 and was president and chief operating officer from February 2001 to September 2004.
