Muntaser Allaf has been appointed general manager of the recently opened Jeddah Marriott Hotel Madinah Road in Saudi Arabia. The hospitality professional will head up the team, with more than 26 years of experience in hotel operations, including strategic planning and leadership.
Allaf began his career with the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center in 1996, ahead of more than two decades spent with a number of Marriott brands. His dynamic career journey took him from North America to the Middle East, where he enriched his skills through four openings in Kuwait and KSA.
With multi-brand experience, as well as pre-opening and property acquisition, he was the ideal choice for such a vibrant gateway to the kingdom’s two holy cities of Mecca and Madina. He will begin by hiring in key positions, building dynamic teams for the premium Red Sea hotel property.
