The St Regis Doha, recently named ‘World’s Leading New Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards, has appointed Amin Al Huneidi as director of sales, to provide greater focus and support for corporate and government clients.
With 13 years of sales experience in leading luxury hotels in Syria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the UAE, Al Huneidi will be responsible for focusing on the corporate and government sector across the GCC.
