Board shuffle as Abercrombie & Kent welcomes new CEO

Amerigo Perasso has been appointed as the new CEO of luxury and adventure travel company Abercrombie & Kent Group, following completion of an investment by Heritage Group.

Manfredi Lefebvre will become co-chairman with Geoffrey Kent who is also the founder of Abercrombie & Kent.

“We will be working together to translate our shared vision for the future into concrete strategies that will allow A&K to reach its goals in the next phase of development, building on seven years of double-digit growth,” said Kent, who welcomed Perasso in his new role.

“He will be working closely with us and the Board of Directors to implement our strategic vision. He brings substantial operating expertise in luxury leisure travel and cruising to our organisation.”

Perasso was previously CEO of Silversea, and most recently he has served as an advisor on mergers and acquisitions to investment funds and private investors.
