Hyatt Regency Birmingham is delighted to announce the appointment of its new General Manager, Mohammad Labban.
Inspired from a young age by the dazzling glamour of the hotels he saw in Hollywood movies, Mohammad was destined for a career in hospitality. Originally from Beirut, Lebanon, he studied Hospitality Management in Cyprus and as a young graduate was quickly snapped up by Hyatt. He has remained loyal to the brand for his career spanning 22 years in some of the most luxury hotels in Asia.
Beginning his Hyatt career in Sales and Marketing & business development in luxurious 5* hotels including Hyatt Regency Jeddah, Grand Hyatt Amman, Park Hyatt Dubai & Hyatt Regency Dubai, to assuming his first General Manager role in India at Hyatt Regency Pune, followed by Hyatt Regency Sharm E Sheikh in Egypt and lately opening of the flag ship resort on the Red Sea coast of Jordan, Hyatt Regency Aqaba Ayla Resort. Mohammad gained valuable insights into the hotel industry through working in different countries and different cultures.
It was as General Manager in Aqaba, Jordan where he led the pre-opening operations of the hotel – building the team from employee number one, to a fully staffed hotel in 18 months. He describes launching the hotel in December 2018 as his most memorable career moment to date, but he has plans for more!
In his new position, as Hotel General Manager at Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Mohammad will continue to develop its outstanding reputation in the city. His commitment to delivering outstanding service will be vital in his leadership across all departments, ensuring all guests have a truly memorable experience.
I’ve had some amazing opportunities with Hyatt so far and I am now extremely looking forward to successfully undertaking this fantastic experience at Hyatt Regency Birmingham.
Birmingham has always been a very special place to me – it is where my wife went to university and where I chose to propose to her many years ago. I cannot wait to explore everything that this glorious city has to offer and have a feeling that my family and I are going to feel very at home here.
