RAS AL KHAIMAH, March 16, 2017

Alan Stocker has been appointed as general manager of Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, a luxurious hotel in the UAE emirate.  

Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah will be Stocker’s third Waldorf Astoria property since joining Hilton in 2011, having previously managed an island resort in the Maldives and a city hotel in Beijing.  Stocker has also supported various projects for the regional offices in Singapore for Thailand, Bali and Malaysia hotels.

A British national, Stocker graduated with a degree in Hotel Catering and Institutional Management from South Devon College of Arts and Technology in 1989 and has successfully built his career by gaining significant experience working in luxury hotels across the world throughout his nearly three decades in hospitality.   

Stocker, a highly visible and well-respected business leader, said: “My leadership style is founded on ensuring high service levels and brand standards while maintaining a fun environment. I strongly believe that it is the team that makes the guest experience.”

With a wealth of operational and managerial experience, business acumen and strong leadership skills, Stocker brings important assets to further enhance the hotel's already prestigious image. He added: “My mission is not only to ensure Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah continues to be recognised as the leading luxury hotel in the Middle East but also to expand the brand awareness in this competitive market.”

“I am immensely looking forward to the challenge of further advancing Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah’s enviable reputation as the ultimate choice of leisure and business travellers from around the world by delivering its signature True Waldorf Service through exemplifying discreet personalised attention and bespoke service.” - TradeArabia News Service
