Sherry Bhatia takes over as the new president of Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India

Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 13:11 Hrs  [IST]

Sherry Bhatia, Managing Director of Golden Swan Group has been elected as the President of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) for the new term starting September 2020. Prior to becoming the President, Mr. Bhatia served as the Association’s Sr. Vice President and has been an active member for over 20 years. Over the years, Bhatia has helped implement several reforms in the Association and strengthened its representation across the Western region. An electronic engineer by qualification, Bhatia ventured into hospitality four decades ago. He set up his first hotel in 1980 and went on to establish the Golden Swan Group consisting of club, hotel, resort and a golf course.

“The HRAWI has been at the forefront in representing the voice of hotels and restaurants for the Western region. Over the last six months of the pandemic, the Association has played a pivotal role in liaising with the Government and its authorities to expedite decision making for the hotels and restaurants industry. HRAWI was successful at convincing the Government to allow hotels to re-open in July. Mr. Gurbaxish Singh Kohli as the President with his team made compelling arguments, submitted several recommendations and relentlessly pursued the authorities to allow re-opening of restaurants in the region. The Association is simultaneously following up on several other matters affecting the industry including the excise license fees, electricity duty, the property tax and the compensation owed by the BMC to requisitioned hotels during the lockdown, among other important issues,” said Sherry Bhatia, President, HRAWI.

For the new term, Pradeep Shetty will serve in the HRAWI committee as its Sr. Vice President, and Chetan Mehta as its Vice President. Jimmy Shaw has been appointed as its Hon. Secretary, Paramjit Singh Ghai, the Jt. Hon. Secretary and Dilip Kothari will hold the post of Hon. Treasurer.

“I am glad to be inducted as the President of the HRAWI, to be its torchbearer. I trust that with the support of my fellow committee members and the fraternity, I will be able to carry out the Association’s duties to the best of my ability,” said Bhatia.

The HRAWI is the hospitality industry’s voice for hotels and restaurants across the Western region including the States of Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Maharashtra, and the Union Territories of Diu Daman and Silvassa.
