Spa Resources Middle East (SRME), the Gulf's only spa consultancy and the owner and operator of Dubai's Cleopatra's Spa brand, has appointed Briton Michael Hill as manager.
Hill's appointment follows the promotion of Daniella Russell as director, health and leisure of MKM, the holding company for SRME.
A 44-year-old holder of an honours degree from Sheffield University and a masters from London's Southbank University, Hill originally joined SRME as its project and recruitment manager in 2000.
