The Marriott Port-au-Prince hotel in Haiti has appointed Chef Karem Khater as its new Executive Chef.
A native of Egypt with more than 14 years of experience in the culinary arts, Chef Khater most recently served as the Executive Sous Chef at the five-star, 520-room Sharm El Sheikh Marriott Red Sea Resort.
“Discerning visitors from all over the world count on us to provide food and beverage options that are uncompromising in quality and big on variety, while also celebrating the very best of Haiti,” said Ellen Wouters, General Manager of the Marriott Port-au-Prince. “The dynamic experience Chef Khater has attained working his culinary magic at half-a-dozen celebrated hotels around the world enables us to build on our strong reputation for culinary excellence.”
Chef Khater began his career close to home working with Marriott International in Cairo, before moving to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he joined the staff at the Marriott Harbor Beach.
He later returned to Egypt, working with Marriott International once again in Cairo.
Chef Khater has also held top culinary positions with Club Med Hotel Group in Morocco and Egypt, and with Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts in Cairo and Elsokhna.
