On the Record: James Rodriguez on taking the top spot at Atlas Ocean Voyages

Atlas has shaken up its leadership team in recent months. CEO James Rodriguez, formerly one of Oceania’s founding management team members, took the helm in August. Rodriguez has since hired Tanya Springer, another Oceania veteran, as Atlas’ vice president of sales.

Kirk Anthony has been named Atlas Ocean Voyages' southeast regional sales director.

Rene Serphos, most recently the controller and VP of accounting for Paradise Cruise Line Management (better known as Margaritaville at Sea), was appointed last week as Atlas’ VP of finance. Serphos has worked as the corporate hotel controller for NCL and Carnival Cruise Line.

The new cruise brand introduced its first ship, the World Navigator, in August 2021 and took delivery of its second ship, the 200-guest World Traveller, on Oct. 7. Both ships will officially be named on Nov. 20 before the Traveller begins a series of Antarctica expeditions. The Traveller will then reposition via the Canary Islands to Europe for 7- to 10-day voyages in the Mediterranean.
