“Rami’s career speaks loudly…of the quality education he received at Les Roches” – Sonia Tatar, CEO, Les Roches
Doha is a rising star in the hospitality scene. As Sayess says, “I am excited to be back in the region after two years in Thailand. With Qatar growing as a business destination and winning the rights to host the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament in 2022, it is a privilege to work here in the hospitality sector at this time.”
According to a recent report by Al Asmakh Real Estate Development Co., Qatar’s hospitality sector, which plans to add more than two dozen luxury hotels, “contributes 9% of total future supply of keys within Gulf Cooperation Council Countries.”
Les Roches International School of Hotel Management excels in preparing students for the career they want. “We congratulate Rami on his new appointment and his achievements,” says Sonia Tatar, CEO of Les Roches. “Rami’s career speaks loudly of his dedication to hospitality and the quality education he received at Les Roches. He is a great example of the leaders we are bringing into the hospitality industry today.”
Sayess has also worked with Movenpick Hotels and Resorts in Kuwait and Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Bahrain. His international experience includes a stint with Mandarin Oriental in the U.K., Beachcomber in Mauritius and InterContinental Hotels in the U.K. and Switzerland. He has also worked with Abjar Hotels International in the UAE.
