HUSSEIN HATATA

VICE PRESIDENT - HOTELS DIVISION, AL KHOZAMA MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Hussein Hatata has seen a number of successes in his role as vice president of the hotels division at Al Khozama Management Company over the past 12 months.

In July, AKMC announced it will open its first hotel in Al Madinah Al Munawara, Saudi Arabia — The Al Khozama Hotel, Madinah — in October 2011.

Earlier this year, AKMC confirmed a management contract for the five-star Al Faisaliah Hotel, Madinah which is scheduled to open during the second quarter of 2012.

The company currently operates the AKMC-Al Shohada Hotel in Makkah and owns the Hotel Al Khozama and Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh, which are both managed by Rosewood.

At the Al Faisaliah Hotel, a Rosewood Hotel, Hatata this year helped oversee the addition of a new US $50 million South Wing, featuring 106 guest rooms and a 576m² Royal Penthouse.

Hatata has remained dedicated to the hotel industry in Saudi Arabia since starting as a room attendant at Al Khozama Hotel in Riyadh in 1978. By 1990 he was a GM after working his way up the ranks and immersing himself in training, including stints at Lausanne in Switzerland and Cornell University in the US.
