Former Hyatt F&B director moves to Saudi conglomerate
Eugene Conradie is now group F&B director at Taj Holding Group
South African hospitality professional Eugene Conradie has been appointed group F&B director at the Saudi Arabian conglomerate Taj Holding Group (TAJ).
Like countless others across the globe, Conradie’s professional career was put on hold at the hands of COVID-19. After only a five-month stint at Hyatt Regency Riyadh, Conradie left the property as “the hotel downsized to survive the business crisis.”
He made the announcement on Linkedin: "Following a two-month pandemic-induced furlough, I'm happy to share I have accepted a new role as Group F&B Director with Taj Holding Group in KSA.
"Thanks to everyone who supported with networking and referrals over the past two months and all the best to those still looking."
TAJ is holding company based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia operating in the GCC and a wide range of international business activities, including hospitality and F&B. In his new role, Conradie will lead the group’s F&B side of operations, helping to look after its businesses and brands.
An industry veteran, Conradie has worked across the UAE, Oman and South Africa in a range of similar F&B roles.
