Celebrity Cruises’ first female CEO on hiring more women captains and bridge officers

When Lisa Lutoff-Perlo took the helm of Celebrity Cruises in December 2014, it was the culmination of a nearly three-decade voyage.

Lutoff-Perlo rose through the ranks at Celebrity’s parent company, Royal Caribbean International RCL, +0.80% from a position in sales to become the first woman in charge of a cruise line publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

Before joining Celebrity, Lutoff-Perlo served as executive vice president of operations for Royal Caribbean and guided the launch of the next generation of Royal Caribbean cruise ships, the Quantum class. Since joining Celebrity Cruises, she has overseen the development of the cruise line’s new Edge class of vessels, which features staterooms with more expansive ocean views and innovative technological advancements.
