In 1969 Shiraz Boghani moved to the UK from Kenya in search of the much-fabled greener pastures. He joined a firm of Chartered Accountants where he received basic training in accounting. After adequate training, he moved to KPMG which rebranded from Thomson McLintock & Co. This would mark the beginning of an incredible journey in the world of business.
Thanks to his ability to capitalize on business opportunities, he co-founded the Sussex Health Care where he is a partner. The institution has enjoyed tremendous growth since its establishment back in 1985. It boasts of more than 500 beds that are distributed in its 18 Care Homes. This growth has been largely attributed to his innovative style of leadership and management.
Shiraz Boghani has also made huge strides in the hotel industry. His 30-years experience in the field has yielded 19 trading hotels. These are under the umbrella of the Splendid Hospitality Group. He is the Director of Splendid Hospitality and doubles up as a Managing Partner. The UK based group has over the years won the hearts of its clients as well as other leading brands in the sector.
In the 1990s he revolutionized the London hotel industry with his limited service branded hotels. They were created to supplement the luxury hotels that were enjoying great success. The Ibis York Centre, as well as the Hilton London Bankside, are some of the hotels in his portfolio. Shiraz Boghani has shown no signs of slowing down as he has every intention of increasing his portfolio.
He attributes much of his success to the support he receives from the Splendid Hospitality Group team. The executive team is well versed in the clients’ needs allowing them to grow in leaps and bounds. The managers have also played an integral part in the success they have enjoyed over the years.
His efforts in the industry have not gone unnoticed. In 2016, he went home with the Hotelier of the Year award during the Asian Business Awards. The Asian Media and Marketing Group is responsible for the awards ceremony which appreciates the business leaders with Asian roots.
Like many other successful businessmen, Shiraz Boghani generously gives towards a number of charitable causes. The Aga Khan Development Network and the Aga Khan Foundation are among the greatest beneficiaries of his generosity.
