Boutique luxury cruise line SeaDream Yacht Club has named Kari Tarnowski as the company’s new Vice President of Marketing.
In her new position Tarnowski will head up all of SeaDream Yacht Club’s marketing efforts globally, including digital, advertising, and brand positioning, as well as the company’s global marketing strategy development and execution.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Kari to the SeaDream Family. Kari’s extensive background and proven track record of success from luxury brands and the cruise industry makes her a perfect fit for our team and the SeaDream brand,” said Andreas Brynestad of SeaDream Yacht Club.
Tarnowski brings more than 30 years of cruise and travel industry experience in marketing, brand, revenue management, sales and reservations.
Over the past two decades, she has held senior marketing roles at companies like Crystal Cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, and Silversea.
“I am truly excited to join a one-of-a-kind company like SeaDream. For me, this feels like coming home. I am returning to my roots in cruising, in a company with huge potential for further growth,” Tarnowski said. “The joy of cruising, for me, is in yachting. Small ship experiences where the crew know your name and your favorite drink on the first day. Nothing can match the unique experience like that,” she added.
Kari is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and resides in south Florida with her two sons. She will start in SeaDream on February 12, and report directly to Andreas Brynestad.
