Fadi Mazkour first appeared on the Hotelier Power 50 list as the founder and regional director of owning company Al Hokair Group’s MENA Hotels & Resorts brand, where he oversaw several hotels and expansion.
This year, however, Mazkour has taken on a new challenge as the hotel division managing director of Etqaan for Hospitality Management, still based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In his new role, Mazkour oversees the management of the KSA hospitality management company’s portfolio of four hotels and 23 hotel apartments located across Saudi Arabia.
One of Mazkour’s first tasks will be the establishment of a new corporate office, as well as to oversee the development of four new hotels currently in the Etqaan pipeline, with two due to open before the end of 2014.
With more than 30 years of experience with companies such as IHG, Golden Tulip, Hilton, Accor, Rotana Hotels, Crowne Plaza and Le Meridien, Mazkour is also a founding member of the Dubai chapter of Skal International and the Lebanese Business Council.
