If you haven’t heard of Shiraz Boghani, he is the Chairman of the Splendid Hospitality Group, which has been named one of the fastest growing hospitality groups in the UK.
In addition, Boghani is also the recipient of the 2016 Asian Business Award for Hotelier of the Year, which is not surprising considering his portfolio of hotels. The Splendid Hospitality Group is comprised of several hotels including the York, the Conrad London St. James, Grand Hotel & Spa, and the Holiday Inn London, as well as the recently acquired New Ellington Hotel and the Mercure Bristol Brigstow Hotel.
In addition to his success in the hotel industry, Shiraz Boghani is also the Co-founder of Sussex Health Care, a New England health group that provides care for the elderly and specialist care for those with learning or physical disabilities. According to the healthcare’s website, Sussex Health Care has achieved an international standard ISO 9000:2000. What does this mean in layman’s terms? Well, it is an international standard that measures the safety, reliability, and quality of goods and services offered by a business entity. Sussex Health Care’s ability to achieve this milestone has made them one of the most sought-after independent care providers in the UK.
There are a number of things, in addition to industry-leading care that differentiates Sussex Health Care from its competitors. For example, the health group prides themselves on their use of specialized equipment and facilities to provide unparalleled treatment to those in need of palliative and neurological care, as well as those who suffer from dementia. In addition, Sussex Health Care routinely partners with local colleges to help develop individualized educational programs, aimed at improving patient care.
As a Kenyan national, Shiraz Boghani’s rise to prominence in the business arena is one that deserves recognition; after migrating from Kenya to the UK in 1969, Boghani began his career with KPMG, where he worked as an accountant. In the 1980s, Shiraz Boghani decided to pursue entrepreneurship, which led to him becoming the founder and managing partner of Sussex Health Care in 1985 and the founder of Splendid Hospitality Group, in 1986.
