The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah has announced the appointment of a new General Manager. Alan Stocker has taken the role, and will bring years of experience and management expertise with him, including extensive knowledge of Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria brand, after he managed the brand’s island resort in the Maldives and a hotel in Beijing.
A new General Manager has been appointed at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah resort in the Middle East. British national, Alan Stocker, has accepted the role, and he brings years of experience and business management expertise to the position.
This will be the third Waldorf-branded hotel Stocker will work at, after he previously managed an island resort in the Maldives, and central hotel in Beijing, and worked on projects at regional offices in Singapore for a number of hotels in Bali, Malaysia, and Thailand.
“My mission is not only to ensure Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah continues to be recognised as the leading luxury hotel in the Middle East but also to expand the brand awareness in this competitive market.”
“I am immensely looking forward to the challenge of further advancing Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah’s enviable reputation as the ultimate choice of leisure and business travellers from around the world by delivering its signature True Waldorf Service through exemplifying discreet personalised attention and bespoke service.”
The new GM studied at the South Devon College of Arts and Technology in the UK in 1989, where he graduated with a degree in Hotel Catering and Institutional Management. He has since built his career over the last 30 years by working in a variety of positions at luxury hotels across the world.
The Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is surrounded by the vast desert, azure sea and soaring mountains. The luxury beachfront hotel has 10 restaurants, a full-service spa, an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, a fitness centre, and a kids’ club.
