General Manager

Park Hyatt Dubai’s new general manager, Mattheos Georgiou has a sharp eye for detail combined with the approachable demeanour of an old friend. Although a Greek national, Mattheos grew up in Germany, but travelled back to Greece frequently to ensure he stayed in contact with his roots. Symbolic of his drive for perfection, Mattheos has the ability to pinpoint a problem and come up with a tangible solution which clearly summarizes his tactical approach. With over two decades of international experience under his belt, Mattheos’s dedication to the Hyatt brand is unparalleled, having joined the brand at the age of eighteen and having never left. Mattheos joins Park Hyatt Dubai after his first General Manager assignment at Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki, from a transition prior to that at Park Hyatt Tokyo.

Mattheos spent three years learning a variety of practical and theoretical skills when he launched his career at Hyatt Regency Cologne. His enthusiasm for meeting people, dedication to service and his desire to discover the world made him into a pioneering hotelier. Mattheos recalls collecting travel brochures as a young boy, whilst his peers would collect, trade and even fight over soccer cards. A strong will to pursue a hospitality career, combined with having an inspiring mentor, has provided Mattheos the tools to excel in this dynamic industry.

A large portion of his career path has been dictated by the people he has met along the way, resulting in his landing in his current role. Having worked at flag ship properties including Park Hyatt Ararat in Moscow and Grand Hyatt Hong Kong his knowledge of the brand is unprecedented. The future of Park Hyatt Dubai is now looking even more prosperous, including several dynamic changes to be introduced over the coming year with emphasis on the atmosphere and vibrancy of the hotel.

Mattheos is no newcomer to Dubai, having worked at Hyatt Regency Deira for two years as front office manager. “Dubai has matured a lot over the years and has become a larger city with real neighborhoods and a vibrant social scene,” says Mattheos. The involvement and activity of Emiratis in the hospitality business is a change that Mattheos feels has evolved in the past ten years, and such involvement was not easily seen at the turn of the millennium.

Outside the work place, Mattheos is an explorer and he makes it a point to visit at least one new destination every year. The exposure to a large number of different nationalities in the work- place provides access to a little piece of each country, assisting him in the decision of choosing a foreign destination. Mattheos believes it is important to spend time alone in order to explore and really form a perspective of your own without being influenced by the thought processes of others. A satisfying place to do just that and connect with his roots at his Greek farm where he grows olive trees and bottles rich olive oil.
