There are new Regional Directors for Intercruises Australia and Intercruises UK & Ireland. The news comes following the announcement that Jeff Mangano, General Manager Intercruises Australia, is retiring after 30 years in cruise industry operations both in Australia and Worldwide.

“Jeff has been instrumental in the development of the Australian cruise market over many years, pioneering his own business before joining the Intercruises team. I would like to thank Jeff for his contribution to the cruise industry in Australia and wish him all the best in the future.” Said Mark Robinson, Managing Director, Intercruises Shoreside& Port Services.
Martin Bidgood, previously Regional Director UK & Ireland, has been appointed as Jeff’s successor, becoming Regional Director Australia. Martin will work closely with Jeff and the Intercruises Australia team in the coming months to ensure a smooth handover. Martin has seventeen years experience in the cruise handling industry, with extensive knowledge of the Australian region having previously lived and travelled in the area.
Simon O’Sullivan will be taking over from Martin Bidgood, becoming Regional Director UK & Ireland. Simon has worked closely with Martin since the creation of Intercruises UK & Ireland and also held roles with two of Europe’s leading ground handlers before joining Intercruises.
