Radis­son Blu Re­sort Fiji has ap­pointed Kushend Kumar as its new Di­rec­tor lead­ing the Sales and Mar­ket­ing depart­ment. Mr Kumar said “I am very ex­cited for the role I have been ap­pointed for and I will try my level best to lead the com­pany with good ex­am­ples.” He said the years of ex­pe­ri­ence he had in the Tourism In­dus­try was a plus for him.

“I have been in this sec­tor for 21 years now and be­ing ex­posed to this en­vi­ron­ment has given me a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence about how work is sup­posed to BE done,” he said.

“I will in­cor­po­rate all the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences I have gone through so far, to make in­formed de­ci­sions as far as my work is con­cerned. “I be­lieve my work ex­pe­ri­ence is a plus as a re­sult and I am look­ing for­ward to a very chal­leng­ing time here at Radis­son Blu Ho­tels and Re­sorts.” He also en­cour­ages ev­ery­one to work hard to achieve some­thing in life.

“I ini­tially started as a re­cep­tion­ist but be­ing ap­pointed to such a po­si­tion was a dream come true,” Mr Kumar said.

I have achieved all this through hard work, be­ing per­sis­tent and hav­ing an in­ter­est in learn­ing any­thing new that came across. “There is al­ways room for im­prove­ment in ev­ery­thing we do, there­fore al­ways work hard, never give up and al­ways have a pos­i­tive ap­proach to ev­ery­thing in life. “Learn­ing from your mis­takes is the best thing one learns from.” Kumar was ap­pointed to his po­si­tion at the prom­i­nent De­na­rau Re­sort on Oc­to­ber 11th.
