Doris Hecht

General manager, Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas
What really sets her apart is that she has created an environment where colleagues feel valued, accepted and respected

With 20 years of hospitality experience, Doris Hecht has made a mark.

Not only was she the first female GM for Hyatt in the UAE, but Hecht even launched the Women@ParkHyattAbuDhabi group, this is a property-specific scaled version of the larger Diversity Business Resource Group women@hyatt, connecting female colleagues around the globe.

Both groups promote an inclusive environment that enables women to be their best self and feel fully integrated into the team and company culture. Under her supervision, the hotel’s profit margins have improved YOY.

But what really sets her apart is that she has created an environment where colleagues feel valued, accepted and respected.
