Sofiane Abdouh receiving the “Outlet Manager of the Year” award
(MENAFN Press) Aloft Abu Dhabi's Relax@12 Manager, Sofiane Abdouh, was awarded "Outlet Manager of the Year" at this year's Hotelier Middle East Awards in what proved to be yet another tremendous achievement of the hotels' Food & Beverage team in general and Relax@12 in particular.

Having progressed from assistant bar manager to bar manager and taken ownership of the hotel's Relax@12 outlet, Sofiane has introduced a new menu, signature cocktails and various promotions. He has also shown true leadership for having advocated informal team-building activities with his team.

Stephan Vanden Auweele, General Manager of Aloft Abu Dhabi commented: "This award proved that Aloft Abu Dhabi has a very successful Food & Beverage team. It is our first award of this kind and we are honored to be the recipient of such a tribute and to have Sofiane as one of our talents".

The Hotelier Middle East Awards recognizes hotel heroes, some back of house and some in the front line, as well as culinary stars and general managers. Boasting 19 award categories this year to compete in, the Hotelier Middle East Awards received more than 700 nominations for the awards, making it a celebration of excellence where the winners truly are the heroes that make all the difference.
