Michael Ungerer joins MSC Group as new luxury brand CEO

Today MSC Group announced that Michael Ungerer joined its cruises business as CEO of MSC’s new luxury brand. Ungerer joins MSC with over 30 years of senior management experience in cruising as well as in luxury hospitality. He will be based out of the Company’s global headquarters in Geneva and will report to Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC Group’s cruises business and broader passenger division.

Mr Ungerer commented: “I am immensely honored and totally excited about the opportunity this one-of-a-kind, truly outstanding project presents. This crowns my professional career and perfectly complements my luxury hospitality and cruise industry experience. Furthermore, I am extremely proud of working closely with a visionary leader like Pierfrancesco Vago and an iconic shipping family that has been able to build a long-term sustainable business in a people-centered culture over many years with values which I deeply share.

Earlier this year, MSC confirmed an order for four luxury cruise ships to be built by Fincantieri for a total value exceeding EUR 2 billion. The first of the four vessels will be delivered by Spring 2023. The remaining three will come into service one per year over the following three years through 2026.
