James Rattos bids farewell to the Sheraton Kampala after 12 years


(Posted 17th October 2013)

After serving in various capacities at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel over the past 12 years, his last position being Director of Sales and Marketing, is James Rattos calling it a day to move back to his native Kenya, where he will on November 01st take up his new assignment as General Manager of the Enashipai Resort and Spa in Naivasha.

Rated on TripAdvisor as the number one property in the Naivasha area, James will take charge of a fine property and ‘A Place of Happiness’ into which the Masai name translates. The resort will this weekend host the first ever Naivasha Fashion Weekend and when James arrives on the scene in two weeks time, no doubt plenty of more such activities will follow, as special events and functions at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel were one of his trademarks.

James is also a Past President of the Skal Club of Kampala and was over the years one of the club’s staunchest supporters, continuing to serve in various capacities after stepping down as club president. He formed the link between Skal and the Sheraton, which in the starting days of the chapter in the early 1990’s was the permanent home to Skal Uganda until eventually other hotels and restaurants matured enough to host meetings.

Congratulations to James who is advancing his professional career with this move and no doubt will Sheraton’s loss in Kampala be the gain of the Enashipai Resort in Naivasha. Kwaheri Ya Kuonana my friend and success in all you do.
