THE ambassador for Tanqueray, Haroon Haffajee, has over 20 years’ international experience in the hospitality industry spanning London, Dubai, The Caribbean, and his home town Durban.

The bulk of this experience was mainly in restaurants but also included events, catering, promotions and personalised food and beverage services.

Haffajee’s natural thirst for knowledge and experience, combined with his interpersonal skills and guest service focus, led him to a position with international spirits company Diageo. As their Reserve Brand Ambassador for KZN, he represented their luxury portfolio across trade, media, consumer and internal channels.

He now runs his own gifting and branding business, while also consulting for the hospitality sector, performing staff training and executing luxury consumer experiences.

A whisky, spirits and cocktail expert; a keen businessman; and a lover of fine wine and food; Haffajee takes care not to take life too seriously while ensuring professionalism in everything he does.

His message to the youth is: “Always­ follow your dreams”.
