Shiraz Boghani was born in Kenya and completed the majority of his schooling in his home nation before moving to the U.K. in 1969 to follow his dream of becoming a qualified accountant. After joining the accountancy firm, Thompson, McLintock & Co soon after arriving in England, Boghani was quickly on his way to achieving his then dream of becoming a chartered accountant.
Over the years, the business focus of Shiraz Boghani has shifted and become more focused on new areas for the qualified accountant who still plays a major role in the accountancy industry within the U.K. However, it is in the hotel sector that Shiraz makes many of his most important business decisions including the choice to build on the success of the Splendid Hospitality Group with a range of now hotels purchased and constructed across the U.K.
Some of the most famous and luxurious hotel properties in the U.K. have now fallen under the leadership of the Splendid Hospitality Group, including the Hilton London Bankside. The continued success of the Splendid Hospitality group is obviously high on the agenda of Shiraz Boghani, but he has not forgotten the importance of giving back to the wider community through his role as a major philanthropist. The philanthropic activities of the Chair of the Splendid Hospitality Group include his lead role as the head of the Aga Khan University in the U.K.
