Bani Haddad, founder and managing director of Aleph Hospitality, commented: “We are very happy to be welcoming Tariq to the Aleph corporate team. Our company culture is one of empowerment, openness, and curiosity, and we already know that Tariq fits in perfectly. Along with an impressive track record of strategic leadership, Tariq is an innovative and visionary hotelier, and he will be a major asset to regional hotel owners and brands under our management.”
