MICHAEL SCULLY

MANAGING DIRECTOR — HOSPITALITY, SEVEN TIDES

A familiar face in the Hotelier Middle East Power 50, Michael Scully heads up Dubai-based Seven Tides portfolio of hospitality acquisitions, commercial buildings, residential towers and multi-use complexes in Dubai and London.

Since joining Seven Tides as managing director — hospitality in 2009, Scully has opened the Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel and the Mövenpick Deira Hotel, both five-star properties, with two five-star hotels to open on The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

With a career spanning 20 years and three continents, Scully has worked in the UAE, UK and South Africa for some of the largest hospitality groups including Sun International, Accor, Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, Forte, Le Méridien and Starwood.

Based in the UAE now for the last 15 years, some of his major projects in Dubai include the 600-room Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Mina Seyahi resort, which Scully worked closely with the Dubai Government to develop and ultimately manage under the Le Méridien brand.

In 2006, the Dubai Government also handed Scully responsibility for developing the 300-bedroom Westin Mina Seyahi Hotel.

Today, Scully’s leadership of the Seven Tides hospitality group extends to the Dukes Hotel in London. A future focus of the group’s Dukes Collection will also involve significant expansion.
