Altaf Sheriff

altaf-may17 “When I went for a dinner as a child to a 5 star hotel I was taken up by the service industry. The opportunity this industry has given me to travel and work in different countries means I have got to enjoy different cultures. I have travelled and worked all over Middle Eastern countries, Australia and New Zealand.”
Altaf joined the Jet Park Hotel team in October 2014, and has enjoyed 25 years in the hospitality industry.  Highlights of his career have included being Chief Accountant for a chain of Italian restaurants in Dubai, and enjoying the role of Assistant Manager Finance for a Finance cluster with Intercontinental Hotel Group in Perth, Australia.
What makes this industry so appealing to Altaf?  “It’s a vibrant industry that makes the job interesting, and I enjoy meeting different people and being a part of making guests happy during their stay. Also the personalised service given by the staff, teamwork in particular and the joy of being one big family, are what I believe are strengths of the Jet Park Hotel.”
Having grown up in India, Altaf loves to spend quality time with his family- playing backyard cricket with his boys and he’s a big fan of the Black Caps. He also enjoys Bollywood movies, and travels whenever possible. His favourite holiday destination would have to be Dubai where you can “Shop ‘till you drop and enjoy the different cuisines.”
