Revenue Manager, The Grace Hotel
Sawaid is a passionate hotelier who loves a busy lobby, guest and staff interaction and teamwork. Throughout his career he has valued dedication & integrity as his biggest strengths and has always been interested in numbers & revenue which enabled him to produce positive results for teams he has been part of.
