Form Hotel Dubai - the only Design Hotels property in the region - has announced its new general manager. Houssam Mansour joins from Rotana.
Mansour has been in hospitality for over 25 years, starting out with Le Meridien - part of Starwood at the time - in 1997 as an F&B trainee in Abu Dhabi. Before the turn of the century, he stepped up to restaurant manager of Le Royal Meridien Bahrain, later moving to Renaissance Carthage in Tunisia as F&B manager.
Following a stint with Coral Hotels, he would spend the next six years with Hilton through a range of increasingly senior F&B roles. Joining as F&B manager of Hilton Hurghada Resort, he would go on to work in Sharm El Sheikh, Turkey, Ukraine, and the UAE.
He then went to work with Rotana as EAM of the Fujairah Rotana Resort, later moving to Towers Rotana in the same role. His first GM role was in 2015 where Rotana named him head of Villa Rotana Hotel. He joins Form Hotel from Towers Rotana Hotel.
