Dubai-based Aleph Hospitality has promoted two of its employees to cluster positions, the group announced.

The company promoted Ajnesh Kumar, financial controller, and Hilal Kaarafani, executive chef, of Getfam Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to cluster positions.

After their promotion, Kumar and Kaarafani will be responsible for Aleph Hospitality’s upcoming hotel, the Best Western Plus Westlands in Nairobi, Kenya, that is set to open in September 2019.

While Addis Ababa will be the two employees’ base, they will commute between the two cities, overseeing the operation of their respective departments in both hotels.

Speaking about the promotions, Bani Haddad, founder and MD of Aleph Hospitality, commented: “These promotions will bring significant benefits to both hotels, as we streamline overheads for our owners and share the skillsets of our most talented people across properties in our portfolio. We want to use the power of modern communication to our advantage and believe cluster positions can easily cross geographies, with the right support structures in place.”
