Royal Caribbean CFO Accepts Position With Argosy Gaming Company

Wednesday, July 10, 2002
Capping a distinguished 17-year career with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Richard J. Glasier, executive vice president and chief financial officer, will leave the company this month to become president of Argosy Gaming Company in Alton, Ill. The move will return Glasier to the gaming industry, where he worked for Ramada Inns for nearly a decade in gaming and hotel operations. "The company has been able to grow at the rate it has and expand with the vigor it has, in large part, due to Dick's guidance and leadership," said Royal Caribbean's Chairman and CEO Richard Fain. "We are far stronger today, thanks to his efforts, and we are far better set for the future. This company is indebted to him, as am I personally. We wish him the best of luck in his new position." Bonnie Biumi, currently vice president and treasurer, will serve as acting chief financial officer. Biumi, who has been in her current position for three years, has a long-standing relationship with the company, serving as senior manager on the account for auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers as far back as Royal Caribbean's initial public offering. Immediately prior to joining Royal Caribbean, Biumi served as chief financial officer of Neff Corporation, a Miami-based NYSE equipment rental company. "While I look forward to assuming my new role," said Glasier, "I leave behind an industry and a company that have provided me with many rewarding relationships and experiences. I leave confident that Royal Caribbean is well-positioned to continue to take advantage of its strong growth opportunities and wish the management team much success in the future."
