Julia Siebert
Vice President – Leisure, Business Development and Brand Strategy at COLUMBIA blue


Born and raised in Bremerhaven, the close proximity to the North Sea definitely had a great influence on her choice of studies: Julia completed a Bachelor degree in Cruise Industry Management followed by a Masters in European Studies. The semester brakes offered great opportunities to gain practical experiences on board cruise vessels.

From thereon captured by the sea, Julia worked through different positions in the cruise industry (from Assistant to the Top Management for Project Management, via several other roles to Director Operations and Product Management) within the past 15 years for various tour operators, 3rd party manager and ship chandler. Her biggest achievements to date were the involvement in several major cruise vessel conversion projects as on-site manager and the start-up of a cruise line in a leading role in charge for Product Management and Delivery.

Julia Siebert joined COLUMBIA Cruise Services in early 2017 and was trusted with the task to build the Hotel Operations as a new business sector. In her role within CCS she is leading and coordinating the skills and resources of the hotel operations team, striving for unique and tailor-made product delivery solutions for our clients and their guests. With the foundation of COLUMBIA blue – The Leisure Group in May 2021, Julia has been appointed to Vice President – Leisure, Business Development and Brand Strategy.
