MCI Appoints Christine Duffy to Advisory Board of Directors

MCI has announced that Christine Duffy has been appointed to MCI’s Advisory Board of Directors, effective today. Current President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cruise Lines International Association, the international cruise industry’s largest trade and travel agency association, Christine served six years as President and CEO of Maritz Travel Company.

In addition to her CLIA responsibilities, Christine serves on the executive committee of the U.S. Travel Association (USTA) and the Board of Directors for Visit Florida and on the foundation board for Meetings Professionals International. Christine is an active supporter of women in the industry and founder of MPI’s Women’s Leadership Initiative.

Corporate Meetings and Incentives chose her as one of the “Top 10 Women Leaders in the Meeting Industry” and Meetings News magazine named her one of the “25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry” four times.

MCI’s CEO Sébastien Tondeur commented: “I am delighted that Christine has accepted to serve as Member of our Advisory Board. At MCI we have always been focused on the best interests of our stakeholders, shareholders, employees and clients. We believe Christine’s experience and strategic insight on high growth family businesses will be invaluable in helping continue to build a great company. Along with the entire team, we welcome Christine in our family."

Duffy said: “I have come to know Sébastien and Roger Tondeur over the years and admire the work they have done to grow their business globally while maintaining a strong culture of innovation and synergy among a wide network of businesses. I look forward to contributing as part of their Advisory Board of Directors."
