U.S.-based passenger vessel operator Hornblower Group announced it has appointed Kevin Rabbitt has CEO. Rabbitt is expected to take up the role in July, while founder, Chairman and current CEO Terry MacRae will continue as Executive Chairman.

Rabbitt’s appointment comes at a pivotal time for industry-leader Hornblower as many parts of the Group’s operations prepare to resume operations when current pandemic restrictions are lifted.

“In these unprecedented times, there will be challenges alongside opportunities,” Rabbitt said. “I look forward to ensuring that the business is well positioned to come out stronger in the months ahead.”

A member of the Hornblower Board since 2018, Rabbitt joins from NEP Group, where he has been CEO since 2012. His career also includes a stint at management consultants Bain & Co, and Las Vegas-based Global Experience Specialists, where he advanced to be President and CEO.
