Crowne Plaza Dubai promotes hotel manager to GM
Georges Farhat replaces outgoing general manager James Young
Crowne Plaza Dubai has promoted Georges Farhat from his position as hotel manager to become acting general manager of the property.
Farhat takes over from the previous GM James Young, who has moved to the InterContinental Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Commenting on his promotion, Farhat said: “I am very excited about leading the winning team of Crowne Plaza Dubai and I look forward to driving the business and achieving our targets for 2014.”
Farhat brings more than 25 years of hospitality experience – 20 of which were with the InterContinental Hotel Group – to his new role.
Since joining Crowne Plaza Dubai as a management trainee in 1994, shortly after the hotel’s opening, Farhat has risen up the ranks to his current role.
