My name is Mario La Rosa, and I am currently working in Abu Dhabi for Saadiyat Rotana Resort and Villas (the most luxury Rotana Resort in the Market) as a speciality outlet manager. I have been part of the preopening team of this beautiful property (pre-opening stage executed without the Director of Food and beverage) and I was also sent for the preopening of the five star Al Bandar in Dubai.

I believe that I have many skills which may be of benefit to your department. For example, apart from the great experience in the industry, and the organisational skills, I am fluent in Italian (my mother tongue), Spanish and English. I also have a good understanding of Portuguese.

Having worked for many leading companies and in five different countries, I have gained some valuable experiences in customer service and strengthened my interpersonal skills and therefore I am fully aware of the workforce and customers’ diversity and their different needs (essential skills needed for the success of any international hospitality company).

Showing my commitment to the hospitality industry I would like to mention that I graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) in 2011 with a 1:1 BA (Hons) in Hospitality Business Management, I completed (with Distinction) a Masters in Marketing for Hospitality, Tourism and Events in January 2013 and a beginner, intermediate and advanced wines tasting and spirits diploma in 2012 (WSET).
