Interval International, a vacation services
provider and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group, has
appointed Sherif Khalil to vice president of resort sales and
business development for Middle East and North Africa.
Mr. Khalil reports to Darren Ettridge, senior
vice president of resort sales and business development for
Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
Based in Dubai,
Khalil is responsible for securing new resort affiliations
throughout the region and providing service to existing affiliates. He will also pursue business development opportunities
for Interval and Preferred Residences, the hospitality branded membership and exchange programme for luxury shared ownership
resorts offered by an operating business of Interval Leisure Group.
“We are delighted to welcome Sherif back to
Interval, as he is well respected in the region and is an
outstanding addition to our team,” said Ettridge. “We believe
there is great potential for growth in these markets and his
expertise will enable us to enhance our standing in both.”
Khalil initially joined Interval as operations supervisor in its
Cairo office in 1999. He was promoted to operations manager in
2002 and to general manager for Middle East and North Africa in
2003—a position he held until 2007. From 2008, he continued to
