Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, has appointed Shrikant Shenoy as vice president corporate strategy.
He joins Jumeirah from Dubai Holding where he was director of strategy development and deployment for almost six years.
Responsibilities included coordinating the annual target setting and business planning process for Dubai Holding, developing strategy and targets for the group’s real estate and telecommunications subsidiaries, evaluating business plans and investment proposals and executing special projects in support of Dubai Holding and its verticals.
Before joining Dubai Holding, Shenoy worked for McKinsey & Company in Dubai from 2008-2010, for Banco Santander in Spain in 2007 and for Agilisys in the UK from 2000-2006.
A British national, Shrikant is a graduate of Oxford University, where he studied Engineering, Economics and Management, and has an MBA from London Business School, as well as holding the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
Group chief human capital officer, Nabil M Ramadhan, said: “Shrikant’s role will be to support the implementation of the company’s corporate strategy and its project management framework in collaboration with the Executive Committee.
“We welcome Shikant’s expertise in strategic development and his experience in Dubai as we prepare for a period of accelerated growth, starting with the opening of Jumeirah Al Naseem next year and a raft of new managed properties under both the Jumeirah and Venu brands coming on stream from 2017 onwards.”
