Deepu Kundra

Deepu is a seasoned hotelier with 18 years of international experience and having worked with some of the most iconic hotels, he developed an adept understanding of the hospitality industry. Currently, Deepu is the Executive Housekeeper of Fairmont Ajman, a part of the luxury tier of Accor with 252 rooms, 4 restaurants, a ballroom capable of seating 500 guests, a spa, a gym, an infinity pool, and a private beach.

In 2018, Leaders in Hospitality Awards selected Deepu as the Best Executive Housekeeper. Reporting directly to the Director of Operations, he manages the housekeeping team as well as the outsource laundry operations. Being a part of the pre-opening team of Fairmont Ajman, he set up the department from scratch, dealt with recruitment, and trained the team. Managing expenses and optimising revenue have been his core focus areas over the years and he was able to engage his team with financial figures so everyone works towards a similar goal.

As a leader, Deepu 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. Deepu’s vision for housekeeping is to become the most professional division which attracts talents, retains them, and nurtures them like never before in the history of hospitality. Housekeeping will not become a choice but an inspiration for many to opt as their field of interest in career making.
