Sharq Village & Spa appoints director of sales & marketing

DOHA, July 25, 2021

Sharq Village & Spa, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Doha has recently appointed Shady Abdelaziz as the Director of Sales & Marketing.

He will be responsible for leading the comprehensive Room sales, MICE, Catering sales, Revenue management, PR and Marketing efforts for the hotel, in this role. Prior to his current appointment, Shady held numerous Sales Leadership roles at Four Seasons Hotel Doha, the last one being Director of Sales.

Shady brings over 21 years of commercial and operational experience in the hospitality industry, and has an impressive record of leadership and commitment to quality and service, which will immensely contribute towards adding value to the team. Shady will be responsible for identifying new business opportunities and elevating the brand positioning further, with his meticulous outlook and passion for driving excellence.

Commenting on his new appointment, Shady said: "It is my absolute honour to join the Ritz-Carlton family and become a part of this dedicated team of Ladies & Gentlemen at Sharq Village & Spa Hotel. As I take over the reins in leading the Sales & Marketing division, I am motivated by the fact that this resort is truly one-of-its-kind and holds a special place in the hearts of Qataris, residents and travellers alike. It is my endeavour to raise the bar in providing the finest standards of service to our loyal patrons, who over the years chosen their ‘home away from home’ at Sharq Village & Spa.”

A hospitality veteran, Shady began his career in 1999 in Egypt and enjoyed a steady growth from working in Front Office and eventually moving to Catering Sales with reputed hotel brands in Cairo & Sharm el Sheikh. In 2007, he made the move to Qatar and joined Four Seasons Hotel Doha as part of the Catering Sales team.

From 2011 to 2012, Shady made a brief detour from Hotels and took on a Sales role with Dubai World Trade Center, but soon returned to Four Seasons Hotel Doha once again as Director of Catering Sales & Conference Services – his niche. From here he was promoted to Director of Sales in 2016 and has ever since been a highly coveted sales resource, eventually coming on-board to join Sharq Village & Spa Hotel.

Maintaining excellence as a seasoned sales resource, Shady earned due recognition for achieving commendable business results but also being a truly driven leader.

A great advocate of ‘putting people first’, Shady carries with him a firm sense of ambition, not failing to equally prioritize emotional intellect, which he believes truly drives our industry.

Shady grew up in Egypt where he studied Hotel & Tourism Management from Alexandria University in 1999 and further pursued his passion for education by securing his Master of Business Administration with Distinction from The University of Wollongong, Australia in 2016. – TradeArabia News Service
