FRANCISCO NOGUEIRA DE SOUSA
Founder & CEO Blue Shift
We want to implement the Blue Shift Attitude in the hospitality industry.
An active, independent and positive attitude that stands out for differentiation and innovation; an attitude that defines the strategic alignment for each product with customers, which focuses on the implementation of differentiating content; an attitude based on processes, tools and necessary procedures to achieve exceptional financial results. What we offer is an individual solution for each project supported by two fundamental principles…transparency and respect for all the employees, partners and customers.
We don't compete with the current market – we work togheter to be the solution, an active change.
This is our attitude. This is our motto and the movement that we want to bring to all Investors, Developers, Owners and Lenders.
We're here to embrace your challenges as ours.
We're not a Hotel management company but an innovative and leadership Hotel company.
For us the introduction of innovation, ironically doesn't mean new ideas, but inspire everyone around us to go further their "job description", in addition to their daily tasks. Our job and mission with innovation is "only" help everyone in the organization to share their opinions, to believe and expose their ideas and to develop and implement it.
PRESIDENT & CEO OF SMALL LUXURY HOTELS OF THE WORLD
"Why Blue Shift? I would simply say that it was their ability to convert all our requirements and brand standards into simple guest experience, while at the same time focusing on delivering the maximum financial benefits to our individual owners. Nevertheless, our choice on Blue Shift as our exclusive Managing Partner for Portugal was based on our common passion for hospitality, because we recognize their tenacity in dealing with the ever shifting priorities, and their indisputable track record for developing very profitable high quality Hotels & Resorts. We see a lot of potential in investing the future together with Blue Shift."
PRESIDENT & CEO DOLCE HOTELS AND RESORTS
"We were delighted by the way Blue Shift reopened CampoReal in only 45 days, a process that usually takes from 6 to 12 months. Blue Shift made the difference by bringing international chains’ know how and exhibiting high standards in hotel operations across a host of business functions. All of this contributed to a smooth handover and we look forward to working with Blue Shift again in the near future."
