Shiraz Boghani is a U.K. businessman who originally hails from Kenya. His entrepreneurial career has seen him find a massive amount of success in a couple of very different fields. Shiraz is a major figure in the United Kingdom in both the healthcare/patient care industry and the hotel industry. His roles respectively are as co-founder and board chairman with patient care company Sussex Healthcare and chairman of Splendid Hospitality, one of the United Kingdom’s leading hotel industry firms.
Shiraz Boghani has been the recipient of many accolades as an executive with both of these companies. In 2016, The Asian Business Awards named Shiraz as their Hotelier of the Year Award recipient. Shiraz Boghani has also been instrumental in helping Sussex Healthcare to become one of the most accredited healthcare/patient care operations in the U.K. today. Shiraz has also seen large amounts of success in the fields of accounting, real estate and finance.
Born in Kenya, Shiraz came to the U.K. in 1969 and worked as an accountant before beginning his career in the hotel and hospitality industry. He later went on to co-found southern England’s Sussex Healthcare with Shafik Sachedina. Beyond his involvement in his business ventures, Shiraz is also a proud member of Ismaili community and serves on the Ismaili Community National Council.
Shiraz Boghani has been a major force in the development of Sussex Healthcare and its network of care homes. His expertise in the hotel and hospitality industry has been instrumental in helping him to understand how to provide an ideal living environment for Sussex Healthcare’s many full-time residents. The company provides living arrangements for the elderly community, particularly those suffering from conditions in the Alzheimer’s and dementia spectrums. The company also works with younger adults who have suffered traumatic brain injuries or have developmental difficulties.
The background that Shiraz Boghani has brought to Sussex Healthcare from his work in the hotel industry has been the perfect compliment to the background that fellow co-founder Shafik Sachedina brings with is background in the medical industry and dental surgery. Along with their great leadership team at Sussex, the two continue to lead the firm to a bright future.
