I love when good things happen to good people! Such is the case with my good friend Cindy D’Aoust, who is currently transitioning from her current role as COO of MPI into a new role as executive vice president, membership and operations for CLIA — the association representing the cruise line industry.
Until recently, CLIA was led by another industry veteran (and another longtime acquaintance of mine), Christine Duffy. Interestingly, Christine and Cindy worked together at Maritz for many years. Christine is currently president at Carnival Cruise Lines.
One of Cindy’s first priorities is overseeing CLIA’s move from their current headquarters of Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Washington, DC. I believe she’ll execute that move flawlessly, given her track record of industry success.
MeetingsNet recently posted the announcement; you can read it here.
Congratulations on your new leadership role, Cindy! Wishing you all the success in the world!
