OSM is targeting the cruise sector with a dedicated South Florida office.
OSM Cruise Manning in Fort Lauderdale (Davie) is led by Willy Mentzoni.
- We have a lot of very highly qualified people in crewing and technical management. We have managed passenger vessels in the past and we are fully equipped to manage cruise vessels, says OSM Group Chairman Bjørn Tore Larsen.
OSM has long thought about branching into the cruise business.
- But we have waited until we had the resources to develop the sector and do it in an impeccable way, Larsen says.
OSM has a global reach and a vast network of recruiters.
- This will enable us to deliver very good service at a very competitive price, he says.
- Our ambition is not to be the biggest in the world. We are looking for somebody to entrust us with their business. Slowly and surely we will grow because we have satisfied customers.
