But the topic is important. Did you see that RCI just got a lady named Roberta Jacoby this week who was the SVP of corporate special projects for Carnival Corp., reporting to then vice chairman and chief operating officer Howard Frank.
Jacoby joined Carnival in 1976 as an air/sea reservations agent; first reporting to Micky Arison. Her former boss at Carnival, Bob Dickinson, noted Jacoby is known in the travel business for her management talent and tough negotiation skills.
One assignment was helping oversee the transition of Seabourn to Holland America Line.
At one point Jacoby served as SVP of hotel operations for Carnival Cruise Lines’ 23-ship fleet, with responsibility for food and beverage, casino, spa, photography, accommodations, entertainment, shore excursions, youth programming, corporate training and crew.
