FADI MICHEL MAZKOUR

FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR, MENA HOTELS & RESORTS MANAGEMENT

Trained in Lebanon, Fadi Mazkour began his career in Gulf hospitality at the former Forte Grand in Dubai (now Le Méridien) in 1989, and then worked for Crowne Plaza and Rotana, where he took on his first general manager role at the Jumeirah Rotana.

After a period as corporate business development director for Coral International, he moved to his present company in 2008, taking over as regional director of business development and marketing in 2008 with responsibility for the 25-strong hotel division of the Al Hokair Group.

The latter owns and operates hotels, working with brands including Holiday Inn, Golden Tulip, Hilton and Novotel.

After working as area manager and general manager for Golden Tulip Suites & Tulip Inn in Dubai, he was founder of the company’s new hotel management company, MENA Hotels & Resorts.

The first hotel was opened in Riyadh and four properties are currently under development — two in Riyadh, one in Al Khobar and one in Muscat — while plans for the future include expansion to 15 hotels by 2017 with three brands, Mena Grand, Mena Suites and Bayti Suites.
