During my 20 years with Marriott International in the different brands; Marriott, JW Marriott, Renaissance and The Ritz-Carlton, I gained lots of experiences in Sales & Marketing, Training, Planning, Revenue Management and Hotel Operations.
-I worked at the Cairo Marriott (1250 rooms) for almost 6 years as Senior Sales Manager handling Travel segment, Incentives, Corporate Groups, Mice business and Marriott World Wide Sales Offices.
-I then joined the pre-opening team of the JW Marriott as Director of Event Booking Centre then Director of Sales where I was number three in the hotel team setting all policies and procedures for the Sales & Marketing Department including recruiting the whole Sales & Marketing and Reservation team. In addition I was handling the Golf membership Sales and Events at the Golf Club House.
During the time I spent at The JW Marriott we created the special corporate business base, strategies to set the hotel as World Class Hospitality and number one choice for all business travellers. In addition GCC sales trips were done to all GCC countries and attended most of the International Trade shows in London, Germany, Moscow and France.
-Moving further with my career with Marriott I joined the Renaissance Sharm El Sheikh as Director of Sales & Marketing where contacts with International wholesale partners in the different source market were established in addition to local corporate and pharmaceutical group business.
-Finally I joined the Ritz-Carlton as Director of Sales & Marketing and introduced new F&B concepts which resulted into a major positive shift – more... in numbers
-I am a certified trainer for the Middle East and Africa for Marriott international Managers and Executives for the past 10 years and already attended more than 18 Marriott training
-I am holding Egyptian and Lebanese nationalities, speaking Arabic, French and English.
As I always wanted to grow my career within the hotel business, I did operation training at the Renaissance for 10 months and at the Ritz-Carlton for other 10 months covering most of the hotel operation; One month before the De-flagging of The Ritz-Carlton Sharm El Sheikh I was promoted to Hotel Manager and have always covered the hotel operation replacing the General Manager during his absence and vacation
I am looking forward to grow my career within the hotel business industry where I can use my experiences gained over the years to generate positive results and achieve owner priorities by leading and motivating team members towards one goal. – less
