Up close with …

Sathyapal Nair Director of Finance

1- Why Hotels and how did you start? After qualifying as an accountant in India in 1990, I took a post as senior accountant with Abjar Hotels. 2- What do you enjoy most about your work? I like to work with people and the really good thing about hospitality is that you get experience and knowledge of a lot of business areas. I like to learn how the whole business works, to contribute and ask challenging questions. 4- What is your reason for travelling to various countries? Finance skills are very transferable in the hospitality sector because hotels are the same everywhere in the world but the approach to accounting is different in each country, so I wanted to learn more. 5- What will be your focus for the coming months? Controlling costs and maximizing revenue – within the constraints of maintaining high levels of quality and services that guests expect.
