Saeed Ahmed has joined the new five-star Radisson Water Garden Hotel Dhaka to undertake the role as Director of Sales & Marketing (DOSM). Saeed’s career spans 14 years, including five years at Dhaka Sheraton Hotel in senior level management positions.
With an MBA from the Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Saeed has a strong sales & marketing background and has worked in different international and local corporations before joining the upcoming new five-star hotel in Dhaka.
The General Manager of the Radisson Water Garden Hotel Dhaka, Ian Barrow said, “Saeed brings his regional experience and strength in promoting and selling hospitality services and his experience and corporate network is definitely a plus point for a new hotel”.
Most recently Saeed had been heading the marketing division of a non-banking financial institution and as he says, “running and selling hospitality services is always enjoyable, but it is more exciting to open a hotel”. “I guess its like coming back to my own profession with new and diversified challenges”, Saeed says.
The new five-star Radisson Water Garden Hotel Dhaka, scheduled to open in late 2004, is a part of a major hotel expansion program being undertaken across Asia Pacific by US based Carlson Hotels Worldwide. Through its regional operations, Carlson Hotels Asia Pacific plans to expand aggressively across its three hotel brands - Regent International Hotels, Radisson Hotels & Resorts and Country Inns & Suites by Carlson.
