Taj Dubai has named Ranjit Phillipose as the property’s new general manager following the departure of Jason Harding.
An Indian-born British national, Phillipose joins the team with over twenty years of hospitality industry experience in luxury hotels across five countries and three continents. Having started his journey in 1993 with Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces in Chennai, he quickly rose through the ranks.
Phillipose’s key achievements include overseeing eight hotel openings and rebranding projects including three hotels in the United States, 51 Buckingham Gate London, Taj Exotica Resort and Spa Mauritius, Taj Dennis Island Seychelles, Taj Wellington Mews Mumbai and the $50m+ restoration project of the Taj Group’s fourth Heritage Palace Taj Falaknuma Palace.
“I am delighted to join the team at Taj Dubai, and am honoured to have been given this opportunity to lead the group’s first luxury property in the Middle East. It is indeed an exciting time for the hotel and the company with its vast expansion plans. I look forward to driving the hotel and further strengthening its position in a highly competitive landscape,” said Phillipose.
