MUSCAT, June 13, 2024

Shangri-La Muscat in Oman has appointed Deepak Mehta as the resort’s new Director of Finance. 
Mehta joins the team from the St Regis Maldives, having previously served as Director of Finance at Shangri-La New Delhi, and brings a wealth of experience to the role, with almost two decades' work in financial management in the hospitality industry.  
A chartered accountant by training, Mehta’s financial acumen, leadership skills and in-depth industry knowledge have opened doors to executive roles at some of the world’s most prestigious hotel brands, with a particular focus on the APEC region.
“I am delighted to be returning to the Shangri-La Group, and in particular, to be joining the team in Muscat, which is at an exciting point in its growth,” said Mehta. “I look forward to working with the executive and finance teams to optimise the property’s systems and strategies and support the development of Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah and Shangri-La Al Husn.”  
Mehta’s detail-oriented expertise will be instrumental in fine-tuning the financial management strategy of the complex, which boasts 640 rooms and suites. 
Nick Flynn, the resort’s Hotel Manager, concluded: “Deepak will be a fundamental executive member, strengthening the resort's financial planning and analysis capacities and ensuring compliance across the board. Hence facilitating revenue growth and significant improvements to costs and efficiency, resulting in an enhanced financial performance that aligns with the complex’ strategic business plan.”  - TradeArabia News Service
