Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Wednesday, 12 September 2007

Wael Soueid has been appointed as the new General Manager of the JW Marriott Dubai.

Soueid has over 16 years of international experience with Marriott Hotels & Resorts. His career with Marriott began in 1991 at the Marriott Prince de Galles in Paris as the Night Audit and Night Manager. Within two years he found himself promoted to Front Desk Manager; a position he held for a short time before moving to the JW Marriott in Dubai as Front Office Manager. This role expanded his depth and knowledge, as he was actively involved in successfully opening the additional 150 room extension to the hotel. Soueid also managed the hotel through a significant refurbishment of all the bedrooms and restaurants and managed and maintained successful relationships with Abu Dhabi Government accounts.

In 2001, after his many accomplishments at the hotel, Soueid was promoted to Director of Rooms Operations. Soueid's experience, not only at the JW Marriott Dubai, but also on the task force which opened the Renaissance Tunis and piloted the conversion of the JW Marriott Kuwait, led him to the appointment of Cluster General Manager of the Jeddah and Madinah Marriott Hotels in 2003. He managed the Jeddah Marriott through an extensive renovation programme and created an effective outside catering operation which now generates 12 million Riyals in sales from an initial base of 1 million in 2003. His skills and expertise were recognised in a number of global leadership awards in 2005 and 2006, including an International Lodging General Managers Award in 2006.
