Mohamed El Reweiny

General Manager at Mӧvenpick Resort Hurghada


A well-educated and highly experienced General Manager with a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the hospitality industry. Having served fifteen years in management positions and quickly progressing through the industry I have gained excellent leadership skills, I know the ins and outs of my field and the likely motivators and challenges that individuals face at each point in their career. This means I can both manage and lead by example drawing on past experience to effectively deal with problems and challenges as they arise. I have a proven track record in successfully analysing situations and making complex operating, administrative and procedural decisions, always keeping an eye on the bottom line and ensuring efficiency in all operations. Currently looking for a challenging new position that will allow me to both utilize and further develop my management and business development skills.
