I have been living in Dubai since 2012 and am currently holding the position of Services Manager for Damac Properties. This is a very varied position and my day to day roles can include anything from managing a staff team of 25 people, ensuring the CEO and his family are well looked after and their needs have been met, ensuring the family house is well maintained, liaising with outside companies and contractors, and organizing the Food and Beverage requirements for the private functions that take place at the house.
Prior to this, I spent 7 years in the U.S., in Atlanta and Chicago, where I worked in the hospitality industry, first as Restaurant Manager in Indian House Restaurant and afterwards as Operations Manager in a hospitality company. This was a very rewarding period of time for me as I developed many business organisation and people management skills and was privileged to deal with some very high profile guests including the U.S. President. In Chicago, as Restaurant Manager, I was involved in recruiting and training staff as well as developing an extensive fine dining food and drinks menu. I was very proud of the fact that the restaurant continually received a rating of 9% or better by state health inspector and a food critic writer awarded the restaurant the highest rating for any restaurant in the Chicago downtown area. My work in the U.S. also included business skills as I was involved in creating comprehensive business plans financial projections and operational strategies. I was able to increase sale revenues through various marketing and promotional activities and reduce costs by carefully managing the inventory and reducing wastage.
My career to date had allowed me to gain experience in a variety of sectors including the service industry, hospitality industry and corporate world. I have very strong IT skills and have an extensive knowledge of Point of Sale systems. I am confident at communicating with people from all backgrounds and pride myself on my professionalism at all times.
I believe my natural optimism and energy together with my experience in leading teams of people and my passion to do the best I can in any environment would make me a great asset to your company.
