“We’re thrilled to have Raj join our real estate development team as we continue to further cement the Hard Rock brand as a pillar in the global luxury hospitality space,” said Emanuele in a statement. “His extensive experience in bringing top-of-the-line luxury integrated resort concepts to life makes Raj an invaluable addition to the Hard Rock team.”

Dajani has more than 30 years of experience as a real estate professional, planning, designing, and constructing integrated resort developments including luxury residential, hospitality, and casino properties. He has worked for firms such as Kerzner International and developed luxury towers for Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas, Morocco, and Dubai; One & Only hotels and resorts in the Bahamas and Mexico; and the Mohegan Sun Resort in Connecticut.

Dajani returned to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas to plan and implement a revitalizing development program for Brookfield Hospitality Management. He most recently worked for Galaxy Entertainment Group as head of planning, where he launched a development operation to pursue a license to develop and operate a multi-billion-dollar integrated resort.
