Collaborator in Hospitality Design and Management
Mihran Kalaydjian has dedicated his career almost exclusively to working within the hospitality sector. During this time, he has been responsible for the design and project delivery of a diverse range of hotel projects, alongside feasibility work, design audit work and hotel design consultancy.
His approach to every project is to create an extraordinary place that offers a fresh interpretation of the client’s program and the unique character of the site. Such a place should be original, inspiring, and engaging to the mind and senses. The primary source of inspiration and innovation is the site and its particular environmental, cultural and historical context. The design of the resort must be about the people and the environment and not simply an intellectual exercise in design and aesthetics.
Mihran Kalaydjian has over 22 years of experience in the hospitality and leisure industry, providing consulting and advisory services to all major brands including Hilton, Starwood, Marriott, Wyndham, IHG, and Hyatt Hotels.
In addition, Mr. Kalaydjian brings a diverse and successful track record to Foxlin, having held senior-level positions in hotel and restaurant acquisition, operations, asset management, accounting and finance for a variety of hotel groups and individual owners/investors, including JW Marriott and Four Seasons.
Mr. Kalaydjian has a passion for new concept creation and implementation, including evaluating new market concepts and demand, new design and décor, pre-opening strategic planning, staff development and retention, re-branding and marketing, menu development, transition strategies, management development and leadership and revenue and profitability goals.
