Carnival Australia president Sture Myrmell has been named as the new chair of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australia.

Myrmell has more than 20 years’ experience in the cruise industry, working in various roles across four Carnival brands over that period. He has been based in Australia for 11 years and became president of P&O Cruises Australia in 2016. In late 2017, he was also appointed as president of Carnival Australia.

“I'm looking forward to working with the association’s executive committee to continue its great work in raising the profile of cruising in the region and ensuring cruising remains the standout success story of the local tourism industry,” said Myrmell.

Named as chair during CLIA Australasia’s annual general meeting in Sydney, Myrmell will replace current chair Steve Odell who has held the position since 2016.

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve as the chair of CLIA Australasia during an exciting couple of years for the local cruise industry,” said Odell. “I wish Sture every success as he takes the reins and continues CLIA Australasia’s great work in advocating on behalf of the industry and promoting awareness of cruising holidays in Australia and New Zealand.”
