Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai has appointed Anna Collier as its general manager. Collier will be responsible for the overall hotel performance and operations.

Collier’s career with Marriott spans over a 21-year period. Following her initial appointment at Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Manchester as an assistant restaurant manager, she subsequently held several senior food and beverage & operational roles within the UK.

During this time she was recognised as “Manager of the Year” for four successive years. Anna concluded her UK tenure with her first GM appointment at the Marriott, Victoria & Albert Hotel in Manchester.  

Collier moved to the UAE in 2013, where she was pre-opening Resident Manager at the Marriott Hotel & Marriott Executive Apartments Al Jaddaf, Dubai. As a key part of the Leadership Team, Anna achieved outstanding results following the opening of the two properties.

Prior to this role, Anna was the general manager of Courtyard and Marriott Executive Apartments, Green Community.
Following a six-month closure of the hotel due to flooding, she repositioned the hotel back to the market and re-aligned the food & beverage offerings with two new concepts.

Collier holds a Higher National Diploma in Catering & Institutional Management obtained at the University of Manchester.
Speaking about her appointment, Collier said: “I am delighted to join Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai, and I am looking forward to contributing to the continued success of the hotel. I look forward to delivering exceptional results for all stakeholders and I am committed to bring the new Sheraton experience to life, establishing the hotel as the central gathering place for all communities.”
