With a career in the hotel industry spanning over 15 years, the last six of which have been spent building a highly respected presence within Kempinski Hotels’ managerial ranks, Wissam Suleiman joins Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates as its new Executive Assistant Manager.

Suleiman is a vibrant addition to the Dubai hotel’s talented team. “Suleiman has had an exemplary career so far, having worked at some of our most high-profile properties in Jordan – many of those stints involving the strategic groundwork and gruelling training efforts involved in opening new properties and setting up new teams,” says Holger Schroth, General Manager of Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates. “His refreshing ideas are much looked forward to here at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, and we are very pleased to have him as part of our team.”

A Jordanian national, Suleiman began his career as a receptionist in Middle East Hotel in Amman, and soon made his way up the corporate hospitality ladder, moving up to the position of Front Office Manager at the hotel, a position he held for two years. Suleiman worked in the same capacity at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea, from where he moved to Beirut to help build the hotel’s opening front office department, and then to Mövenpick Resort Aqaba.

In 2004, Suleiman joined Kempinski Hotels as Front Office Manager as part of the opening team of Kempinski Hotel Amman. His extensive experience led him to play a key role within the opening teams of two other showcase Kempinski properties – the uniquely designed Kempinski Hotel Ishtar – Dead Sea, and the chic and modern Kempinski Hotel Aqaba, where Suleiman served as Executive Assistant Manager in charge of all operations at the hotel.

During the course of his many years in the hospitality business, Suleiman has had the honour of serving various members of the Jordanian royal family, including His Majesty King Abdullah II, as well as several prominent global figures including princes and princesses from the GCC and Europe, a number of Heads of State, prime ministers, ministers, and religious figures such as Pope John Paul II and the Dalai Lama.

Commenting on his move to the UAE, Suleiman said: “I am very excited about moving to Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates. As a city hotel – and a landmark one at that – with several unique attractions, the hotel affords numerous opportunities to attract an even larger share of market. I have a few creative ideas   for boosting the hotel’s already well-established presence in the region and look forward to using my skills and experience to making it happen in the months to come.”
