Shakir’s inclination towards hospitality began at the popsicle age, since his father was associated with the same industry, and his experience has led him to where he is today, as General Manager of regional indian restaurant, Jamun.
After completing his hotel management from IHM Chandigarh in 2011, he started off as a hotel operational trainee at The Westin Gurgaon, and later joined the same company as a management trainee, and was later promoted to an Assistant Restaurant Manager in Le Meridien Pune. After heading the Indian restaurant Chingari for 2 years, he left for Kuwait to discover the diversity in food and beverage offerings internationally. After two years, he was thankful for the opportunities he had, but could no longer ignore the longing for home, nor ignore the sweet voice of alcohol calling him back to her embrace!
Known for his funny and occasionally twisted comments, he calls himself a ‘super nicely sarcastic guy’.
