Hilton Dubai The Walk has appointed Gisele Clark as the new hotel manager. Clark will be joining the hotel with over 20 years of experience in hospitality leadership.
An experienced hotelier and past winner of the Hotelier Middle East Hotel Manager of the Year Award, her earlier career began with Thistle Hotels in London before joining as operations manager at The London Marriott County Hall Hotel in 1999. After eight years with Marriott Hotels and Whitbread, Clark joined the Firmdale Hotels as hotel manager of The Soho Hotel in London and then as general manager of The Knightsbridge Hotel.
Clark then moved to the United Arab Emirates joining Jumeirah Group in 2010 as general manager, operations support for the MEASA region managing the pre-opening for hotels under development, in particular Maldives, Azerbaijan and Istanbul. Clark stayed on at Jumeirah Vittaveli Maldives as general manager before returning to Dubai as hotel manager at Jumeirah Mina A Salam, Madinat.
As the hotel manager, she took the hotel through an extensive refurbishment program across the property. Clark worked closely with contractors and project managers to ensure that every task was completed and results delivered at the right time whilst making sure that guest services were not disrupted or overly inconvenienced.
