Shiraz Boghani And His Team Live Up To Splendid Service
Shiraz Boghani is the renowned hospitality expert who hails from Kenya. He spent his formative years there, and then relocated to the UK to pursue his career. He earned his higher education degree from the London School of Economics. Thereafter, he attained his chartership as an accountant. He has more than 30 years of experience in the institutional housing industry.
In 1998, he founded the Sussex Healthcare Group and currently serves as its joint chairman. The company provides full-service housing for the functionally challenged. Some of its clients suffer from congenital neurological disorders, while others acquired mental, physical and/or emotional damage due to traumatic accidents and/or aging. Through Sussex Healthcare Group, Shiraz Boghani and his team aim to allow each client the opportunity to live with as much autonomy as possible. Within the framework of their clients’ apparent limitations, his various Sussex Healthcare housing facilities deliver full-scale, customized support.
In 2007, Shiraz Boghani founded hotel businesses. Today, he functions as the Executive Chairman of Splendid Hospitality Group. This business venture is presently comprised of 20 hotels offering a thousand times as many bedrooms. It is considered among the fastest developing hotel conglomerates in the UK. His company is the recipient of the ‘2018 Leading European Hotel’ honor by the 25th Annual World Travel Awards. In 2016, he was also awarded the distinction of ‘Hotelier of the Year’ by Asian Business Awards.
From his focus on the well-being of his Sussex Healthcare clients, he recognized that all markets of clientele may also present unique, niche needs. Shiraz Boghani realized that the daily stay needs of someone seeking an extended booking for work in the area may vary greatly from the daily accommodations expected of a couple on a romantic excursion for a week. Likewise, should an area present enough demand for a particular type of daily stay needs, it becomes financially wise to cater to that market for that area. He finds this especially true with respect to the hotel industry because it is quick and simple to flip venue focus from one habitation and hospitality niche to another. Shiraz Boghani was the first hotelier to introduce this type of limited service approach in London in the 1990s. His admirable wisdom also led him to found and add the luxurious Splendid Restaurants experience to his choice establishments.

Dick Devos is well known in the business world for being the President and CEO of Amway. Now after the fact, he has run for governor of Michigan, campaigned with his wife US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and started a second company called The Windquest Group. He is also an avid pilot, which makes sense why he want to work with the Federal Aviation Administration in his next venture.
Devos joined the Management Advisory Council last year for the FAA after he was invited. He would be the 13th member to join. The other members come from transportation authority and airline executive backgrounds. So how does Devos fit in? For one, he has been flying for many years and has several pilot licenses. He is also an avid promoter of aviation education and even co-founded an aviation charter school in Michigan with his wife.
The West Michigan Aviation Academy is a charter school located in Grand Rapids. Its campus is on the Gerald R. Ford International Airport grounds. Most people recognize Devos for being a businessman through sports arenas and performing arts, but Devos has contributed much to the aviation world as well. He has worked with several airlines to achieve an expansion at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in particular.
However, Devos’ history with the international airport starts back in the 1990s, when he wanted to help the CEO get the airport back on its feet. The airline industry has always gone up and down, but Devos saw real promise in creating a business traveler airport in Grand Rapids. He reached out to several airline executives wanting to see if they would be interested in working with him on expanding at the airport. He eventually got Air Tran Airways to expand in the early 2000s, followed by Southwest.
However, his biggest move was to help the airport expand with a $45 million renovation deal that will be completed this 2018. The deal includes a new food court, new terminals, and a huge business traveler center. The whole point is to bring back new interest in the airport and make sure that it continues to thrive.
