Stephen Meredith wins top accolade

DUBAI, May 28, 2017

Stephen Meredith, general manager of Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay Dubai has been recognized as Leading General Manager MENA at the recently held Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2017, produced by Hotel News Middle East magazine.

Meredith has been part of the Steigenberger team since May 2016, joining as executive assistant manager, then taking over as general manager towards the end of the year, bringing almost 28 years of experience in the hospitality industry across Africa, Europe, Asia and the Middle East along with him.

No man is an island, and the win comes as a great motivation not just to Stephen, but to the entire team, who have rallied behind him to effect a dramatic turn-around in the operational and commercial success of the property in a relatively short period of time. “Although it’s my name on the trophy – this one is definitely for the team” he insisted.

Well known for leading from the front, Stephen has conceptualized 'Nextcom', an initiative aimed at empowering and preparing the hotel's management team to take on senior leadership roles that demand high performance results to be delivered.

The team has already chalked up numerous victories since opening, including Leading New Hotel at Leaders in Hospitality Awards 2016, Luxury Hotel of The Year at the Luxury Travel Guide Awards 2016, Luxury Business Hotel at the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016, as well as a Time Out and Hype award for the hotels new ‘urban space’ – The Backyard. - TradeArabia News Service
