Holland America Line Opens Rotterdam Office

Wednesday, February 28, 2007
From its start 134 years ago as a Rotterdam-based shipping firm, Holland America Line opened an office in Rotterdam. The Seattle-based cruise line returns by opening a sales and marketing office. Located in the Kop van Zuid section of Rotterdam on Wilhelmina Pier, the new office will eventually house approximately 30 Holland America Line staff members, responsible for shipboard hiring, purchasing, and sales and marketing. The new office is only 100 meters from the site of Holland America Line’s original office on Wilhelmina Pier in what is now Hotel New York. Manuel van Engelen, Holland America Line director of sales for the Netherlands, manages the new Rotterdam sales and marketing division, supervising the creation and management of Holland America Line’s Dutch market activities. Holland America Line intends to increase its visibility in the Rotterdam community with a program to develop community involvement opportunities in such events as the Maritime Museum, the Ronald McDonald House and more. City officials welcome the prospect of Holland America’s participation in city events and activities.
