Shiraz Boghani: Successful Accountant, Healthcare Business Owner And Hotelier

Shiraz Boghani was born in Kenya in East Africa, but he has become internationally known and respected because of the work he has done in the healthcare and hotel industry in the United Kingdom over the past 35 years. Boghani did not emigrate to England seeking fame and fortune, he simply wanted the opportunity to become an accountant. But his drive and vision has enabled him to do much more than that. In addition to becoming a chartered accountant in England and Wales, Shiraz Boghani has co-founded one of the United Kingdom’s most successful healthcare companies and hotel groups.

Once Shiraz Boghani became a chartered accountant and was enjoying a successful career, he began to look around for other business opportunities. One of the first opportunities that arose was in the healthcare industry. There was a serious shortage of facilities offering quality nursing and residential care in the United Kingdom, so Boghani co-founded Sussex Health Care in 1985. The organization provides excellent, compassionate 24-hour care for the physically and mentally challenged, patients with neurological disorders, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and the elderly in 20 award-winning care homes throughout the United Kingdom.

Shiraz Boghani has also made his mark in the hotel industry. In the 1990s, he was in the forefront of the movement to establish and market limited service branded hotels. He co-founded Sojourn Hotels and handled their single asset deals as well as managing their entire hotel portfolio. Boghani is also director and managing partner of a leading Prestigious UK hotel chain, The Splendid Hotel Group. The company owns 20 top trading hotels. Some of the hotel projects with which Shiraz Boghani is involved include the £112 million Hilton London Bankside, Conrad London St. James, New Ellington in Leeds and the York based Grand Hotel & Spa. He also oversees and owns 19 other hotels throughout the United Kingdom. In 2016, Shiraz Boghani was voted Hotelier of the Year because of all the contributions he had made to the industry.

Boghani also invests his time and resources to philanthropy. He supports several charitable causes and organizations. Boghani is also very active in the Ismaili community in the United Kingdom and worldwide. He volunteers with the global Ismaili charity called the Aga Khan Foundation. Shiraz Boghani also plays important roles with the Ismaili National Council, Aga Khan University and the Ismaili National Conciliation and Arbitration in the United Kingdom.
