Karem Khater Named Marriott Port-au-Prince’s New Executive Chef

The Marriott Port-au-Prince in Haiti has announced the appointment of chef Karem Khater as its new executive chef. 

A native of Egypt with more than 14 years of experience in the culinary arts, Khater served as the executive sous chef at the five-star, 520-room Sharm El Sheikh Marriott Red Sea Resort immediately prior to joining The Marriott Port-au-Prince family.

Khater began his career close to home working with Marriott International in Cairo. His next move, though, would take him more than 10,000 miles away to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he joined the staff at the Marriott Harbor Beach.

He later returned to Egypt, working with Marriott International once again in Cairo. Chef Khater has also held top culinary positions with Club Med Hotel Group in Morocco and Egypt, and with Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts in Cairo and Elsokhna.

The 175-room Marriott Port-au-Prince opened in February of 2015 with a mandate to not only create significant local employment opportunities, but also to establish direct linkages with local suppliers across multiple areas of hotel operations, thereby boosting the overall Haitian economy.
