When asked how he felt after winning the prestigious award he responded, “It is the first time that I have won something of this magnitude, so it really feels good”. Mr. Boghani currently owns 19 hotels in the UK area and serves on multiple boards of other hospitality companies where he provides clear direction and guidance for their business operations.
Outside of his professional roles, Shiraz Boghani is also a leader in the Ismaili community.
