Sven Wiedenhaupt General Manager at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

During Sven’s 37-year career in the hospitality industry, he has worked at 16 hotels across six different countries. Throughout the years, he has worked with thousands of colleagues and acquired a wealth of knowledge that he is always willing to share with those around him.

Sven reflects upon how one of his greatest achievements, which was graduating from École Hôtelière de Lausanne, helped him to establish himself in the industry in two important ways. Firstly, it validated him as a top hospitality professional at the beginning of his career. Secondly, as he became an ambassador of the school, he is now a reflection of the school standards which is something he is exceptionally proud of.

For the past three and half years, he has left his personal touch as a General Manager in three of Jumeirah’s Dubai properties. He chose Jumeirah because he felt that the brand perfectly aligned with his values and that the group has the potential to satisfy his curiosity in terms of growth, innovation, and the culture of taking care of people. With each new mission, the company has given him the freedom to apply his unique experience to in turn develop and empower those around him.

What Sven loves about Jumeirah is the ‘culture of continuous growth’ which he has seen first-hand. In just two years, the Emirates Towers promoted over 200 employees within the hotel and the rest of the company.

His favourite part about working for Jumeirah is the exciting future of the group. And, for Sven, this future starts with the employees. He believes that everyone can be a winner at Jumeirah because of the close-knit family feeling, the solid support network, and amazing opportunities on offer.
