Syed Hassan Raza

Executive Assistant Manager, Hamilton Island Entreprises

Bachelor of Business (International Hotel & Resort Management), Adelaide, 2007

With more than 360 rooms plus luxury Bungalows and over 100 staff under his management, Raza has come a long way since his first stage placement on Hamilton Island back in 2007.  Now the Executive Assistant Manager he credits his success to “doing his dues on the ground” understanding every component of the hotels operation having worked as a night Auditor, in F&B, rooms division, as well as having a major role in the resorts renovated.

Raza worked his way ‘up-the-ladder’ from Assistance F&B to Reservations Operations Executive to his current senior management appointment which he takes up when he returns to Hamilton Island later his month.

Raza said: “being the night Auditor offers the best experience and provides excellent grounding if you want to take on a managerial position in the future”. Raza said his management style is very hands-on, “if you can’t measure it – you can’t manage it…. don’t be afraid of getting your hands dirty”. These are his words of wisdom to new graduates.

Raza also highlights to his interns that you need a lot of patience when working in the hospitality industry – keep your ears and eyes open!
