An award from a prestigious institution after providing 30 years of dedicated service is indeed a fitting cap given to Shiraz Boghani of the Splendid Hospitality Group.
In 2016, the chairman of the SHG was honored by the Asian Business Awards with the esteemed Hotelier of the Year Award. This plum is a testimony of the long years of remarkable service that this hotelier has provided the industry. He has given his dedicated service all these years to the hotel industry with 101 percent commitment, deep passion and unquestionable professionalism, and it would be remiss for the industry not to recognize him for it.
Having a dynamic personality, Shiraz Boghani lends his dynamism to the service that he has provided the hotel industry. That earned him praises from the people in his line of business as well as those outside of it. His long years of service in this industry began to be noticed in 1999 when he started to develop branded hotels offering limited services. He made a mark for himself by starting to develop 25 such hotels. Boghani is now the proud owner and operator of 19 trading hotels in the United Kingdom.
Career wise, the 2016 Asian Business Awards recipient is a registered Chartered Accountant. He has a special place in his heart for hotels and has directed his passion towards its further development. He is not stopping from developing new and innovative projects. The Hilton London is one of his most recent projects. It is a stylish construction project costing £121m and is located in the prestigious Bankside area in London. Additional projects of his company SHG worth noting are The Grand Hotel & Spa, located in York, The Conrad London, situated in St. James and Holiday Inn, in the city of London.
Boghani’s Splendid Hospitality Group is not only involved in high-cost construction projects but also into acquisitions of highly-valued properties. Some of the properties that his company has put its hands into are the Mercure Bristol Brigstow Hotel, and the New Ellington in Leeds. Shiraz Boghani also lends his hands to charitable work and has provided his help to such institutions as the Aga Khan Foundation and its affiliate Aga Khan Development in its international operations.
His work as chairman of Splendid Hospitality Group requires him to provide the company a clear vision on how it can involve itself into various enterprises and to direct the growth of its business. Under his chairmanship, the SHG has dramatically increased its business that includes an assortment of branded hotels totaling to thousands of bedrooms that service hundreds of thousands of businessman, travelers and tourists.
