The ‘Marketing Person of the Year’ award at the 11th Hotelier India Awards 2019 in upscale to mid market category went to Rahul George from Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park. Here, is a short excerpt where we get to know a bit more about to Rahul as he shares his thoughts on Hotelier India.
Winning the Hotelier India Award is not something I expected to do at such an early stage of my career, which is why it is all the more special to me.
The Hotelier India Award has always been a point on my professional bucket-list, and I am thrilled that I got to check it off.
Great mentors, leaders that stood by me at all times, and a fantastic set of supportive colleagues, along with dedication and hardwork are what helped me win this award.
To me, the Hotelier India Award is the biggest hospitality award a person can win in the span of his career. It is definitely a milestone on my career graph and is sure to be a huge contributing factor for all future aspirations.
I try my best not to let my personal matters affect my work, but I also avoid carrying my work home. I am a stickler for time management and have an eye
for detail. Everything I do is analyzed and viewed from different perspectives before being sent out, and also in a timely manner.
I love unconventional hotel brands such as Aloft or a W Hotel. I see myself as part of the regional brand/marketing teams of such brands in the next few years.
The hospitality industry is a great place to be in, with tremendous growth expected in the coming years.
The number of hotels opening every month is staggering, with a whole bunch of new brands coming into the market, many of which were previously
considered very practical for the Indian hospitality industry.
