Andrea Zito, CEO Swan Hellenic

Having seen the cruise market increase from three million travellers in the 90s to 30 million travellers today, Andrea has an unparalleled knowledge of the industry and all things ships.  

Before taking the helm at Swan Hellenic, Andrea was the Senior Vice President Marine Ops and Newbuilding at Silversea, Chief Technical Officer and Head of the Passenger Ships division at V Group and the Managing Director and part owner of Martinoli Group in Monaco.  

Andrea brings with him three generations of shipping knowledge, fluency in six languages and a great interest in different cultures and travelling. Most importantly, however, he wants to inspire Swan Hellenic’s passengers to immerse themselves in the many different environments, fully understand the destination they are visiting and really connect with their emotions when they are there.  

He’s excited about bringing back the iconic British brand, Swan Hellenic, but this time with more emphasis on international travel. 

When he does have some free time, Andrea enjoys all type of outdoor activities including sailing, scuba diving, skiing – or more simply playing tennis and golf – alternatively, he’s always on the lookout for that next secret hideaway.
