Executive Director, Hotel Accounting & Finance

“I enjoy creating a positive and unique experience for guests and our team as well as meeting new people and building relationships. “


Travel, cooking, family and friends


Born and raised in Pakistan, I studied at the University of West London where I graduated in Business Studies. After graduation, I was living in Dubai and was offered the opportunity to work for a hotel management company which was not my first choice but now hospitality has become my passion.


Being the Executive Director of Hotel Accounting & Finance for Coury Hospitality to me means working closely with ownership, lenders, and the hotel operations team. More specifically my position involves communicating financial information effectively and ensuring all parties are satisfied with the hotel’s financial performance. I am inspired to stay up to date with industry trends and innovation and to inspire my team to grow as future leaders.


I was attracted to Coury Hospitality by the lifestyle hotel portfolio and leadership profile. The hospitality industry is fast-paced and ever-changing. There’s always something new to learn, whether it’s about the latest technology or the hottest travel trends.
