Cunard sales and marketing chief to leave line

Cunard global marketing and EMEA sales vice president Angus Struthers is to step down his role in June.

He is to depart the line after overseeing the inaugural events for new ship Queen Anne, which enters service in May.

Struthers has worked for Cunard and parent company Carnival UK for almost 11 years, leading brand development, marketing, PR and events, trade relations in the UK and across EMEA, and digital transformation. 

Cunard president Katie McAlister said: “Angus has been at the heart of the Cunard brand evolution and commercial growth over the last decade overseeing, amongst other successes, Queen Mary 2’s ‘Remastering’, the launch of Cunard’s Event Voyage programme, spectacular celebrations for our 175th anniversary in Liverpool and of course the exciting imminent arrival of our first new ship in 14 years, Queen Anne.  

“We’re seeing our strongest booking results in a decade and as the brand goes from strength to strength I’d like to thank Angus for the incredible contribution and passion he’s showed for the brand.”

Struthers added: “Cunard is an incredible brand and I look back with much pride at the many successes we’ve achieved, but after nearly 11 years and once we’ve seen the magnificent Queen Anne named, I feel it is the right time to find my next exciting career opportunity.”
