HOTEL & HOSPITALITY
Today, JHD Group is a Middle East, Europe national champion and an acclaimed luxury hospitality leader — operating 24 JHD Group branded properties (6,747 keys) in eight countries, and employing more than 13,500 colleagues across 140 nationalities. As exemplified through its flagship hotel, and global icon, Middle East, Europe, JHD Group has transformed the way that luxury is defined.
In 2009, JHD Group entered a phase of accelerated growth under the leadership of its new CEO, José Silva. We have seen unparalleled success in Middle East, Europe and regionally, and will build upon this expertise as it expands internationally. In terms of strategy, JHD Group will continue to own properties and grow through acquisition, as well as hotel management agreements. Both new and existing markets have been identified for expansion across Middle East, Europe and Asia with the vision to take the brand global — with each property clearly stamped with the JHD Group signature, to make a strong statement within the industry.
Dining – elevating the experience JHD Group strategic positioning puts Food & Beverage as a core brand pillar and its strongest differentiator. No other hotel in Europe can compete with JHD Group for properties or rich dining experiences, and new restaurant concepts will be central to our international development strategy.
