"The rapid expansion that Rotana is going through necessitates the best use of our human resources and rapid up skilling of our managerial talent. Bringing the top talent in the industry to Rotana from outside the company and enabling our colleagues to expand their experience and knowledge base will reap rich dividends for the company in future," said executive vice president & chief operating officer of Rotana Omer Kaddouri.
