Trio of international hospitality marketing specialists recruited to expand on growing brand awareness as TIME gains market traction



Tommy Ressopoulos, Vice President Sales & Marketing, TI’ME Hotels Management.




UAE-headquartered hospitality company, TI’ME Hotels Management has welcomed three new senior corporate executives to the team as it continues with aggressive plans to build local market presence and capitalise on the forecasted 67% rise in tourism receipts between now and 2016.


Heading up strategic development is newly appointed Vice President Sales & Marketing, Tommy Ressopoulos.


A Greek national who has worked on four continents, Ressopoulos’ global experience includes senior sales and marketing positions and hands-on general management roles with Hilton International in Europe, the US, North Africa and the Indian Ocean, as well as extensive experience in strategic alliance partnerships.

“I am ‘coming home’ to the region after an almost 20-year absence, and while the hospitality landscape has changed dramatically, the business environment is a familiar one, and I am excited to be part of a growing brand that is helping to reshape the increasingly diverse regional tourism product,” said Ressopoulos.

Also joining the corporate line-up is Svetozar Kujic, Marketing & Communications Manager, who is tasked with expanding promotional and marketing-related efforts in the Middle East and driving international awareness to TIME’s growing global audience.


Kujic brings several years of international strategic brand, digital marketing and social media experience from the tourism, FMCG, automotive and media sectors, with key strategic roles at Opel South East Europe, MTV, the United Nations and Kon Tiki Travel.


TIME Grand Plaza Hotel also has a new man at the top with the appointment of Chris Fourment as Hotel Manager. Fourment will oversee hotel operations and work closely with Ressopoulos and the corporate team to drive rooms business and strategic marketing activity as the group gains momentum and follows through with ambitious 2013 goals.


Another industry professional with a joint marketing and operational background, Fourment joins the hotel fresh from general manager roles with Accor in the Czech Republic and UK.

“With a solid corporate hierarchy now in place, we are looking ahead to a banner year for the brand as we move on from the successful positioning of TIME in the local market to capturing regional and international attention – and revenue,” said Mohamed Awadalla, Vice President, TIME Hotels Management.



“Our corporate team is made up of international hoteliers and marketing experts who, collectively, have the hands-on experience, creativity and passion to take the brand to the next level, and who are supported by operations professionals who have the ability to translate both vision and strategy into a guest-facing reality,” he added.


As well as new additions to the team, Awadalla also announced several internal promotions, with Mohamed Abdel Hadi swapping Sharjah for Dubai in his new role as Hotel Manager in charge of TIME Crystal Hotel Apartments, TIME Topaz Hotel Apartments and TIME Opal Hotel Apartments.


Trading places with Hadi is Mohamed El Deeb, former Operations Manager in Dubai and now the newly appointed Hotel Manager for TIME Ruby Hotel Apartments.
