We visited the elegant Kitano Hotel New York on 6-16-2015. The Kitano Hotel is the ONLY Japanese-owned hotel in New York City and has been in operation since 1973. We met the General Manager, Mr. Zack Zahran, and the Human Resources Manager, Mr. Benjamin Lau. They both have rich experience in international hotel management and take the value of “Traditional Asian Hospitality” very seriously. Mr. Zahran has in his career background many years with the global leading Peninsula Hotel.
While we sat in the comfortable office room drinking coffee, Mr. Zahran and Mr. Lau introduced the company culture of The Kitano Hotel and shared their insight on service industry management. They taught us that “Management is art” and their advice was both beautiful and meaningful. The Kitano Hotel welcomes young people to share their crazy ideas with them and, likewise, they are willing to share their excellent management experience with us.
We appreciate their commitment to support our activities on both a corporate and an individual basis. We are looking forward to friendly and close cooperation with The Kitano Hotel New York from now on! (By Evon Liu )
