14 Jun Solana Beach Mauritius: Naeem Jugon’s perseverance and determination
Nothing destined young Naeem to find a job in the hotel industry. He had no relatives in this field. But when he finished his HSC, he chose to enter the hotel school because he saw that his future lay in this sector. He chose the restaurant industry and did his courses in alternation with an internship at Domaine Les Pailles. It is there that he will start his career as a waiter. This was in 2001.
The following year, Naeem moved to Maritim. After six months, he went from waiter to head waiter. In 2004, he did not miss his first opportunity to enrich his experience abroad. Recruited at the Jumeirah as a Team Leader, he spent a year and a half in Dubai before returning to Seychelles to work at the Beachcomber Saint Anne. In 2006, he settled in France, in Montpellier, in a seafood restaurant.
Naeem returned to Mauritius for the opening of Tamassa in 2007, where he held the position of restaurant supervisor. Two years later, his outstanding performance propelled him to the position of Restaurant Manager in the main restaurant. He held this position for four years before being promoted to Assistant Food and Beverage Manager. Seven years later, Naeem embarked on a new adventure by accepting to join the Solana Beach Mauritius as Food and Beverage Manager.
