Kamel’s new role includes implementing effective operational management, guest services and overseeing the heads of departments to ensure they achieve and exceed their revenue and guest satisfaction targets.

Following her appointment, Nabil is now one of 15 women at the hotel appointed in Director and Management level roles.
