New senior positions for Hilton Worldwide in Saudi Arabia
- Saudi Arabia: Saturday, January 26 - 2013 at 16:30
Hilton Worldwide underlined its commitment to growth in Saudi Arabia with the announcement of two key appointments to its KSA-based executive team. Hospitality industry veteran Mahmoud Mokhtar re-joins Hilton Worldwide as vice president of operations for KSA and Fawaz Moumina is appointed as country director for Human Resources, KSA.
An Egyptian national, Mahmoud Mokhtar will lead all operations across Hilton Worldwide's KSA hotel portfolio with a key focus to support the company's ambitious business expansion strategy.
Mokhtar brings over 25 years experience to the new role following a broad-ranging operational career in hospitality and hotel management which has taken him from Egypt to U.A.E. as well as USA and Fiji.
He is a former vice president of operations for Hilton Worldwide in Egypt & Levant and, more recently, he served as chief operating officer for a KSA-based Real Estate Investment Company.
Saudi-born Fawaz Moumina will be responsible for all HR disciplines across KSA, with a particular focus on nationalisation and, crucially, the recruitment of more than 10,000 additional team members by 2015. Previously, Moumina led a number of key HR initiatives with his former KSA-based employer, a global FMCG company, which earned him a worldwide presidential award for his efforts.
Gareth Fox, vice president of Human Resources, Hilton Worldwide, MEA, said, "Hilton Worldwide enjoys a proud reputation in KSA and the experience, capability and stature of these two senior executives will be vital as we continue to set standards in quality, service and in developing our people."
KSA is currently Hilton Worldwide's largest development market with 16 properties in the company's active pipeline across the country from Tabuk in the North West to Al Jubail in the East as well as the capital, Riyadh. In Makkah alone, the company has six different hotels under development at the landmark Jabal Omar project.
