Khaled then moved to the US, in 1990, where he worked as a Restaurant Manager in North Carolina before re-joining Marriott as Director of Restaurants at the Budapest Marriott, Hungary in 1994 and then taking on the role of Director of Food & Beverage at the same hotel.

In 2001, Khaled was appointed the Cluster Director of Operations for the 3 Prague Marriott properties in the Czech Republic, before his first appointment as a pre-opening General Manager at the Courtyard by Marriott, Moscow. He then went on in 2004 to become the General Manager for the Beirut Marriott Hotel and in 2007 he returned to Prague as the Cluster General Manager in charge of for the Prague Marriott, Renaissance Prague and the Marriott Executive Apartments.

It’s worth mentioning that under Khaled’s leadership, the MEA Al-Jaddaf was awarded “Hotel of the Year in 2014” in its very first year of operation and in 2015 Khaled was awarded the prestigious Marriott Mustang Award for the MEA region for his outstanding performance.
