Richardson, Veitch to receive AOTOS Awards
United Seamen’s Service will present the 2006 Admiral of the Ocean Sea Awards to former Sea-Land Service president Paul F. Richardson, and Colin Veitch, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line, on Nov. 3.
After leaving Sea-Land, Richardson founded the consulting firm Paul F. Richardson Associates Inc. in 1977. It advises carriers, ports, shipbuilding companies, labor and labor-management groups.
Under Veitch’s leadership, NCL entered the U.S. domestic cruise market, putting the “Pride of Aloha” into service in June 2004. Since then it has added two additional ships, the “Pride of America” in 2005 and the “Pride of Hawaii” in 2006.
