Taj Palace Dubai has appointed a new Revenue and Reservations Manager Mohamed Mahran, who is an Egyptian national with over 14 years’ experience spanning prestigious global hotel chains including IHG, Steigenberger and Mövenpick.
Mohamed Anwar, Director of Sales & Marketing, Taj Palace Dubai, said, “Mohamed will definitely be an asset to the sales and marketing team of Taj Palace Dubai. He brings excellent skills in revenue management in particular online distribution channels. Our objective this year is to increase our online bookings by 15% which in turn will boost hotel revenue. We are confident Mohamed will play an instrumental role in helping us achieve our business targets. We are also looking to revamp our hotel website where his experience and expertise will once again prove valuable.”
Following graduation from Assiut University in Egypt, Mohamed took advanced courses in English and Hotel Services at the American University in Cairo before embarking on a career in hospitality as a Reservation Agent at the Semiramis InterContinental Hotel in the city.
He then moved on to the Mövenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna as Reservations Supervisor and later became Reservations & Duty Manager in charge of Revenue Management at the InterContinental Abu Soma, a position he held for two years.
After a year at the Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel in Hurghada, Mohamed moved overseas with a posting to the Arabian Gulf where he joined the Al Raha Beach Hotel in Abu Dhabi – spending four years with the hotel, first as Reservations Manager before he was promoted to Associate Revenue Manager and then Revenue Manager.
