First Central Hotel Suites’ Assistant Marketing Manager, Angelo de Guzman, has been named ‘Sales/Marketing Manager of the Year’ at The Hotelier Express Awards 2018.

Staged on 28 February at Grosvenor House hotel in Dubai Marina, the awards recognised properties in the mid-market segment that are making a difference to Dubai’s hospitality scene.

The awards programme also acknowledged the unsung heroes that make great contributions to the success of their hotels. More than 250 hospitality professionals attend the annual event and only 14 individual and team awards are handed out.

With the mid-market segment growing at a rapid rate over the past few years, it is becoming increasingly competitive and it is now more important than ever to have the right management and talent in place.

Angelo has spearheaded most of the marketing strategies at First Central Hotel Suites and is actively involved in the online positioning of the hotel. Since joining the team he has helped First Central Hotel Suites increase its ranking online and substantially increased traffic to the hotel’s website. TFG Asset Management (TFGAM) is extremely proud of his contribution and was very pleased to see his hard work recognised at The Hotelier Express Awards 2018.

First Central Hotel Suites was also nominated in the ‘F&B Manager of the Year’ and ‘Branded Hotel Apartment of the Year’ categories.  The award and both nominations are testament to the great work of the management team.   

These accolades follow on from the property’s success at the Hospitality Excellence Awards where the  management team received a gold and a silver award.

“At First Central Hotel Suites we have successfully retained and developed the skills of team members and recent rewards and recognition are testament to this,” commented Hani Mansour, Senior Asset Manager at TFGAM.
