Viking opens Fort Lauderdale office


Viking Crew US celebrated the opening of its office in Fort Lauderdale with a grand opening party last night (July 10). Like the other offices of UK-based Viking Recruitment, the Fort Lauderdale office will offer crew placement, crew management and crew deployment in not only the yachting industry but in the commercial and cruise industries as well.

Sue Price, director of operations for the U.S. office, welcomed veteran crew and industry pros from her 16 years as a placement agent with the former Crew Unlimited. Viking executives from the UK were on hand to celebrate the opening.
