The Kenyan-born entrepreneur, Shiraz Boghani has recently been given a major award at the Asian Business Awards where he was named the “Hotelier of the Year” for his work with the Splendid Hospitality Group. Boghani has found success across a range of different areas over the course of his career including a dedication to bringing the success he has enjoyed in the hotel trade to the healthcare industry; the leader of Sussex Healthcare has been hoping to replicate the excellent care provided for his hotel guests in the provision of services provided to Sussex Healthcare guests with disabilities, dementia, and in need of rehabilitative services.
Shiraz Boghani has not always looked to build his personal success through the hospitality industry and actually began his career as a chartered accountant. Arriving in London from his native Kenya in 1969, Shiraz Boghani looked to build on his already impressive education by studying to become a chartered accountant; after beginning his career as a financial specialist, Boghani eventually felt inspired to bring his skills to the hotel industry he had been passionate about for a number of years.
As a hotel industry executive, Shiraz Boghani began to make his first impact on the industry in the middle of the 1990s when he opened a chain of limited service hotels across the English capital. Boghani has often been cited by hotel experts as the hotelier who brought the limited services market to London and the U.K. as a whole and changed the face of hotels in Europe forever. In recent years, Shiraz Boghani has looked to make a change to the hotel industry with the development of a number of luxury hotels across London and the important cities of England under the Splendid Hospitality Group name.
As the success of the Splendid Hospitality Group has grown across the U.K. a series of new developments have been undertaken by Shiraz Boghani including the London Hilton Bankside hotel costing in excess of $150 million to construct. The development of more hotels in U.K. cities such as York has made Shiraz Boghani one of the leaders in the hospitality industry but also allows the entrepreneur to flex his philanthropic muscle in the form of the support provided for the U.K.’s Ismaili community.
