The hotel management company set up last year by Guy Stehlik Is about to make a breakthrough In The Middle East, but he says Southern Africa remains the main target for the group's value-adding proposition
Guy Stehlik, founder and CEO of Bon Hotels, has set his sights on becoming a front-runner in both the South African and international hospitality sectors. He has revealed that he expects his hotel management group set up last year to have at least 10 hotel management contracts by the end of 2013. And they will not be confined to Southern Africa, he says. They could be "anywhere where we can genuinely add value — the big advantage of our operation is that it certainly does not have to be confined to one territory:' Stehlik expects Bon to be managing its first three hotels in Dubai within a few months.
