Dan Hanrahan, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises Takes New Opportunity

I discovered that Dan Hanrahan, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises had announced his departure from his duties at the cruise line via a tweet from Ryan Ruggiero. Since I am a fan of the brand, and Hanrahan, I had to discover more, and because of the instantaneous nature of Twitter, it was easy to get the breaking cruise news.

Hair today gone tomorrow

I was shocked to hear that Dan Hanrahan was leaving his post at Celebrity Cruises for a position at Regis, the hair company (of all places).

Dan Hanrahan’s legacy and a strong bench ready to step up

In a press release from Royal Caribbean International, Richard D. Fain, Chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd sang Dan Hanrahan’s praises: “Royal Caribbean has been very fortunate to have benefited from Dan’s leadership and vision over the past 13 years.” Fain went on to numerate the highlights of Dan Hanrahan’s career, which included leadership on the the creation of the award-winning ‘Get Out There’ campaign for Royal Caribbean International and transforming the Celebrity brand with the stunning Solstice Class fleet.

I echo Fain’s support of Dan Hanrahan and wonder, who will fill the void?

  While Fain did not directly announce the name of a replacement, he did comment, that “fortunately, Dan is leaving a very strong organization, and we are lucky to have great bench strength to continue our vision. While I am sorry to see Dan leave our family, with the strong base of the Celebrity organization and the continued support of the travel agent community, I know Celebrity’s future is in good hands.”

What do you think? Any ideas about who will step up?
