Just found out today that Mr. Steven Hattem of Singlescruise.com is out and is being replaced by a new manager.
Steven was either the second or third manager since being aquired by the Carlson Travel Group from Debbie Popick back in 2004. Seems strange to me that Carlson keeps running through managers so quickly and can't seem to focus on how they want the company to operate.
Sad to see indeed as there were never problems like that under Debbie Popick. Maybe it's all the negative critisism of late that Singlescruise.com has received.
Hey Big Brother....let's see if the fees are eliminated which is a sore point with the veteran cruisers of Singlescruise.com. I wish we could go back to the days of Debbie P. but that doesn't look likel!
Maybe Steven moved on to a better job. I have noticed that travel agents and managers move on to better jobs. That is the future of most Young Americans today. They are able to move to different careers or different companies or different departments. Angel gal
I am told that Steven Hattem has left Singlescruise.com to pursue another business opportunity. Chris Parker has been appointed the new Director of the company. He has over 20 years experience leading cruise travel businesses. Susan Ripmaster is the new Operations Manager. She has over 24 years experience in the travel industry and has been heavily involved in managing all aspects of Singles Cruise.com since it became part of the Carlson family in 2004. The rest of the SinglesCruise.com team remains the same, including Shelby, the fun and lively cruise director, and the reservation staff--Rick, Nancy, Wendy, and Beverly.
