CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, HOTELS & TOURISM DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY, GOVERNMENT OF RAS AL KHAIMAH, UAE

Tasked with revitalising tourism in Ras Al Khaimah with a proposed investment budget of US $100 million for new hotel and tourism developments over the coming four years is chief operating officer of the Ras Al Khaimah Hotels & Tourism Development Authority, Victor Louis.

Having had responsibility for Hilton’s five hotels in the emirate, Louis was well placed to take the reins at the new hotels and tourism authority this May, where he is now responsible for managing overall strategy and putting together a 10-year plan to supervise market-expansion of the hotel sector.

Already, it has been announced that Waldorf Astoria will assume management of a new hotel in the emirate and Hilton will take over operations at Al Hamra Fort.
