Afeef assumes new role as LUX* Regional Director for Training, Development, Quality Assurance
Afeef Hussain has assumed a new role at LUX* Resorts and Hotels; the Regional Director for Training, Development and Quality Assurance.
Afeef, who was serving as the Director for Training, Development and Quality Assurance at LUX* South Ari Atoll before being appointed to the new post from this month on, is now responsible for the overall strategy and execution of all training, team building, organisational development and quality assurance initiatives at all LUX* properties in the Maldives.
A graduate of London School of Economics (Master of Business Administration) and Harvard Business School (Executive Education Programme on Business Administration and Management), Afeef has previously served as the Assistant Director of Training and Quality Assurance, and Training Manager at One and Only Reethi Rah in Maldives. He also led the development of Customer Service Programmes at Atlantis Palm Jumeirah.
Named amongst the 100 most influential HR personalities in the world at the World HRD Conference 2016, Afeef became the first Maldivian to receive such an honour. He is also the only John Maxwell-certified trainer in the Maldives and one of the few master trainers in the country affiliated with Ron Kaufman’s Up Your Service.
Afeef’s appointment as the Regional Director for Training, Development and Quality Assurance comes ahead of the opening in November of the second LUX* property in the Maldives.
Located on the six hectare picnic island of Olhahali in the unexplored North Male Atoll, the new LUX* North Male Atoll will offer contemporary one, two and three bedroom residences spread across the island, set on the beach, steps from the sea or perched on stilts above the lagoon. There are rooftop lounges, outdoor decks, private gardens and 13m private pools.
For the Overwater Residences, the reef itself provides a playground – just pick up a snorkel and go explore the crystalline sea on the doorstep. With the three-floor penthouses, families and groups have ample space to spread themselves, as well as their own spa, steam room, fitness suite and oversized outdoor pool.
