Leadership expert and guru Robin Sharma once said, “Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It's about impact, influence and inspiration.” These words ring true for Rattan Keswani, known as a strategic thinker and a thought leader. The hotelier, inspired by the likes of P.R.S Oberoi, brings his sharp insights and years of experience to his job.
Keswani is a hands-on operator running 57 hotels pan- India and believes in creating value for his employees, guests and stakeholders.The focus of the company has been on strengthening their position in the midscale market, and emphasises on differential hiring policies that ensure low attrition rates. Much like other hotel groups, Lemon Tree Hotels Limited is also entering into management contracts to manage properties.
Last year, Lemon Tree Hotels Limited singed a hotel in Dubai, thus entering the lucrative Middle East market. “Taking into account that India has been the largest source market into Dubai as well as the UAE as a whole, for over three years now, and is constantly growing, we felt the need for a mid-scale hotel of this calibre,” he said.
