Dubai, UAE, 4 July 2018 - Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has promoted Saudi National Musab Shafee to Resort Manager at Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar, a 36-villa boutique property offering exceptional seaside experiences.

Musab, who is passionate about creating happy workplaces for his collegues, assumes the new role after participating in Mövenpick’s Saudi Development Centre (SDC) – an exclusive training programme for nationals working in management positions within the company who demonstrate strong leadership potential.

“I’d like to congratulate Musab on his well-deserved promotion, which will make the most of his vast industry experience and his adept people management and development skills,” said Marc Descrozaille, President Middle East & Africa, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

“His commitment to fostering an attractive work environment for team members is very much in tune with our we make moments business philosophy and we are delighted our SDC initiative is identifying talented and dedicated Saudi Nationals such as Musab who make great leaders.”

Musab has worked in Saudi’s hotel sector for 18 years and before joining Mövenpick, worked for InterContinental Hotels Group in Dar Al Hijra. He has an Associate Degree of Hotel Management from the College of Technology, Saudi Arabia and a Bachelor of International Hotel & Resort Management from Bond University, Australia and says he embraces work challenges that encourage him to “do better and think different”.

When he’s not implementing new ideas to make his guests and colleagues smile, Musab enjoys travelling, playing soccer and fishing and is also an avid cook.
