By BW Hotelier
AASHIMA SHARMA has been appointed as General Manager at Park Hyatt Chennai. Sharma has had a progressive journey with Hyatt, having joined the erstwhile Grand Hyatt Delhi as Business Development Executive, and fast-tracking her trajectory of growth thereafter, from Associate Director of Catering to Director of Catering & Conventions. In 2003, Sharma moved to Grand Hyatt Mumbai in the pre-opening phase as Director of Catering & Conventions, and after a little over two years, she was entrusted with the role of Director of Rooms in the same hotel, a key milestone in her career encompassing all aspects of rooms operations in addition to Spa.
To broaden her professional horizon with an overseas experience, Sharma moved to Grand Hyatt Shenzhen during the pre-opening phase as Executive Assistant Manager ’ Rooms to open this flagship Grand Hyatt in China. Her role encompassed driving recruitment; training and setting up operational standards. She returned to India in 2010, at Sofitel Mumbai BKC as Hotel Manager from where she joins the Hyatt family as General Manager of the vibrant Park Hyatt Chennai. Sharma has been a part of several pre-opening support teams including Hyatt Regency Kolkata, Park Hyatt Goa and Park Hyatt Vietnam.
Sharma leans towards wellness and remains grounded with her morning ritual of quiet contemplation and meditation practices inspired by Jon Kabat-Zinn’s mindfulness and Bob Proctor’s Abundance. She is very excited to be back with the Hyatt family and take on her new role at the vibrant Park Hyatt Chennai.
