Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, is delighted to announce the appointment of its first Emirati General Manager, Samer Khanfar, for Jumeirah Living World Trade Centre Residences in Dubai.

Samer Khanfar, who was born and raised in Dubai, joined Jumeirah Group in 2006 as a Retail Outlet Manager. Samer’s career in Jumeirah progressed rapidly, first as Retail Manager of Souk Madinat Jumeirah, building the Souk’s performance as a  high-end commercial centre, then as Director of Retail, and finally as Director of Property at Jumeirah Living World Trade Centre Residence. His ability to build on the property’s success and establish a strong, positive connection with guests and residents led to his appointment in January 2013 as General Manager for Jumeirah Living World Trade Centre.Earlier in his career, Samer Khanfar held various managerial and sales positions within the construction and chemical industry before discovering his passion for the hospitality sector when he joined Jumeirah. He holds a Diploma in Retail Management from Stonebridge Associated College (UK), a Diploma in Property Management from Ashworth College (USA) and a Certificate in Hotel Real Estate Asset Management from Cornell University (USA).

Jumeirah Group is committed to hiring, developing and retaining UAE Nationals who are keen to start a career in hospitality and tourism. Jumeirah’s Emiratisation programme includes a UAE National Development Programme as well as scholarships and programmes at The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management. Jumeirah also supports UAE Nationals with a wide variety of dedicated training courses.

Jumeirah Living World Trade Centre is situated at the heart of Dubai, right next to the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai Convention Centre and the financial and central business districts. Opening in 2008, it was the first property in the Jumeirah Living portfolio. In early 2012, Jumeirah Living’s second serviced residence opened on Park Lane, London. Grosvenor House Apartments offers its discerning clientele a highly personalised service with luxurious amenities, full business services and flexible accommodation.
