AMINE MOUKARZEL

PRESIDENT, SVP AND MD, FLAMINGO HOTEL MANAGEMENT COMPANY, GOLDEN TULIP HOTELS, INNS & RESORTS MENA

With more than 30 years in the regional hospitality sector and 12 years at Flamingo Hotels, Amine Moukarzel was among the first to spot potential for growth of branded budget and midscale accommodation; taking on representation for Golden Tulip which now has 43 hotels across the MENA region.

Formerly representative for Summit and Preferred Hotels too, he brokered an alternative to the global corporates with a portfolio that offered management under Flamingo, franchise or full membership of Golden Tulip, or a consortium branding.

Currently, Moukarzel has new names to play with following the takeover by Starwood Capital of Golden Tulip, adding its Louvre brands to the portfolio.

Another 30 hotels are in the pipeline with a debut in Algeria, Syria and Qatar plus seven in Saudi Arabia, where there are 18 Golden Tulip and Tulip Inn hotels.
