The ‘Chief Engineer of the Year’ award at the 11th Hotelier India Awards 2019 in economy to budget category went to Syam Kumar from ibis Kochi City Centre. Here, is a short excerpt where we get to know a bit more about Syam as he shares his thoughts on Hotelier India.
The Hotelier India Award has been the biggest highlight of my career spanning 20 years. It has brought my work into the limelight. It is a huge recognition and will enhance my career prospects.
With Accor, empowerment has been the key. I was able to take on and pilot sustainable initiatives that have contributed worthy results for the hotel. We have a great team and this has been a team effort.
My biggest source of support and inspiration are my parents. I would like to thank all the leaders, my colleagues and my team, who contributed big to my successful journey so far.
My winning mantra is to keep it simple, stick to the basics of hospitality, imbibe company values and work towards achieving the goals set by the organisation.
I have handled key roles in the engineering department with three hotels in three different states. Accor has instilled faith in my capabilities and ensured that I explore new opportunities. I look forward to more exciting times with Accor, which is expanding its footprint in India.
The hospitality industry has always been a very demanding and challenging industry. We need to continuously update ourselves and keep abreast with the changing perspectives.
Challenges keep us alive and ticking, and help us to learn, develop and grow.
