Amarnath Kumar

Having worked with some of the most iconic hotels (luxury and business) including world’s tallest Five Star Hotel JW Marriott Marquis, Amarnath has developed an adept understanding of the hospitality industry. While his passion lies in service to guests, he is also equally adroit with administration and finances. Managing expenses and optimising revenue have been my core focus areas over the years and I have been able to engage my team with financial figures so everyone works towards a similar goal.

Amarnath is a result driven, self-motivated individual who likes to face challenges head-on at work. Loyalty, dedication, attention to detail, honesty and integrity are the principles Amarnath abides to at all times. As a leader he is directive and demanding but fair and flexible at the same time. He strongly believes that the team should have fun and learn whilst at work.

As a trainer, Amarnath likes to develop productive and professional individuals who can help the team to perform better. He hires individuals based on their values and attitude rather than credentials. He uses every mistake as an opportunity to learn from.
