I have seen the folks you are talking about. Some may work for actual tour companies or just be group organizers. I don't believe this is a position that the cruise lines have. Most cruise lines contract their shore tours with specific vendors and think those contracts are negotiated at corporate.
Our med cruise did have a "port lecturer". That is the dude whose job I would like to have.
