Topic: Celebrity Cruises; pivoting during COVID/cruise forecast.
Angel Gomez joined Royal Caribbean Cruises, LTD. in 2007. After his successful journey to Manager of Direct Sales in Miami, Gomez was promoted in 2014 to Director of Guest Sales & Service and relocated to Wichita, KS. As Director of Guest Sales & Service, Gomez transformed the Wichita Celebrity Cruises Office into the best-in-class organization it is now known. Angel’s strong leadership skills, dedication, and determination gained him another promotion in 2018 when he became the first Associate Vice President of Guest Sales & Service for the Wichita campus.
As AVP of Guest Sales & Service, Gomez oversees an operation of over 500 employees. His team contributes 70-80% of the brand’s daily global revenue. He is responsible for more than doubling the Wichita team’s employee base in under six years. He’s not only transformed the job opportunities on the Campus but has also increased revenue production for the brand’s global bottom line.
Being heavily involved in the community is extremely important to Gomez; he currently serves as Board President and Co-chair of the Strategic Planning Committee for MARK Arts, Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee, and Executive Committee member for United Way of the Plains.
Gomez was born in California, raised in Florida, and received his BA in Microbiology and Cell Science from the University of Florida. Angel enjoys traveling the globe, spending time with his daughter London, husband, and standard poodles, being active in the community, and he truly loves the arts (art, theater, dance, and music).
