Bob Dickinson, President
Bob Dickinson is president of Carnival Corporation, the world's largest and most profitable cruise company. The Carnival empire includes five other cruise lines beside its namesake. Dickinson began his 30-year career with Carnival as senior vice president of sales and marketing on Valentine's Day 1972, one month before the company's first ship began its inaugural sail. In 1993, Dickinson was named president. He oversees all aspects of the company's day-to-day operations. Dickinson's Miami mansion is of palatial proportions, and he's accustomed to fine service. So how will he adjust to the role reversal when he cleans cabins and serves meals and beverages on one of his ships?
