By Luke Barras-hill |

Sue Gosling has left cruise retailer Harding+.

Harding+ Chief Brand and Culture Officer Sue Gosling has stood down from her position.

TRBusiness understands that the departure of Gosling, following seven years with the business, is effective today (30 January).

A brief statement issued on behalf of the cruise retailer’s Chief Executive Officer Chris Matthews says Gosling ‘leaves a legacy in many parts of Harding+’.

“These include being part of the senior team leading the business through the CVA, post-lockdown relaunch and restarts through to overseeing more than 256 best-in-class projects, new ship launches, refits and space and design projects,” read the statement.

“I would also like to thank Sue for some of her more recent achievements and contributions to our business including the successful relaunch of the brand to Harding+ and her impact on the wider culture in the organisation. I am sure you will join me in wishing Sue well.”

Little is known about the circumstances surrounding Gosling’s departure, nor whether there is/will be a replacement for the role.

Harding+ declined to comment further when approached by TRBusiness.

The company’s long-serving Marketing Director was named Chief Brand & Culture Officer in 2022, responsible for fostering Harding+’s brand identity, sharpening its employer value proposition and prioritising sustainability across its operations.

In addition to various industry-wide commitments, Gosling has participated as a panellist in the TR Consumer Forum and TR Sustainability Week.
