Originally from Kenya, Shiraz Boghani began his career in the UK as an accountant in 1969. Hoping to expand professional portfolio, he began to look for areas of opportunity in the business world. He saw a need for care homes for the elderly and disabled leading him to co-found Sussex Healthcare in 1985, which has grown to over 20 facilities. He also further branched into the hospitality industry in the 1990’s by founding and serving as Chairman of the Sojourn Hotels LLP as well as later serving as Chairman for the Splendid Hospitality Group. Shiraz Boghani has spent over 30 years in the hospitality business in the UK and is considered one of the top leaders in the industry.
Sussex Healthcare, Mr. Boghani’s first business venture, is a managed healthcare facility in the UK. They currently have 20 homes offering specialized long-term, inpatient health care services. Their world-class staff of highly trained professionals specialize in providing a nurturing environment for senior citizens which has earned them several accolades over the last 25 years.
Splendid Hospitality Group controls and manages over 20 hotels in the UK ranging from Shiraz Boghani’s limited services prototypes to 5-star accommodations. They proudly feature world-renowned institutions including Hilton, IHG, Choice, and Accor and are planning further developments in their saturation of the UK market.
Shiraz Boghani is considered, by many, as the first hotelier to see the need for well-known hotels that would offer limited services to their customers offering a more cost-effective alternative to lodging in the UK. Building on that philosophy, he pioneered this growth opportunity by leading one of the largest hotel groups in the UK while demonstrating astronomical growth. His tenacious dedication has paid off with his latest award. In 2016, the Asian Business Awards honored Shiraz Boghani by presenting him with the ‘Hotelier of the Year Award’ for his ability to lead and grow the Splendid Hospitality Group into the powerhouse group it is today.
