3 Aug Khaled Al Jamal , Cairo Marriott New General Manager

Khaled Al Jamal has been appointed as the new General Manager of The Cairo Marriott Hotel.

 A veteran in the hospitality industry, Khaled’s strong International operations background, his in-depth knowledge of the Middle East makes him the ideal candidate for this iconic Marriott property with a dynamic 1060 rooms.

Khaled started his career in 1986 as a night auditor in Jordan, his country of origin. His passion about food and beverages led him to his first job in Marriott Amman where he took various roles in food and beverages. 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.

Khaled then moved to Turkey in 2010 as the opening General Manager of The European Flagship JW Marriott Ankara. And late 2013 moved again to open The Marriott Hotel & Marriott Executive Apartments Al Jaddaf Dubai where he was the multi-property General Manager. 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.
