The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Zakia Kazi as the new Associate Director of Marketing and Public Relations.

Zakia’s roots in the sphere of Marketing and Public Relations dates back to 2006 in her native India, where she joined The Taj Group of Hotels.  She perfected her craft in increasingly responsible roles with luxury hotel brands like The Oberoi Hotels and Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, and was the pre-opening Public Relations Manager at the Shangri-La Hotel Mumbai, before expanding her professional horizons in the UAE.

In the interim, her association with regional and international brands (Rotana, Accor, Hyatt and Marriott) in key Marketing and PR leadership roles, has further diversified her portfolio of experience. 

Adding to her accolades, Zakia recently won a coveted spot as one of the Power25 Marketers in Middle East and Africa.

In her role Zakia will focus on creating strategic marketing and PR campaigns to reinforce The Ritz Carlton DIFC’s position as the leading luxury business Hotel in Dubai.
