Atlantis Global President Tim Kelly to step down

"It has been a privilege and a pleasure to serve as President of Atlantis for the last six years," says Kelly

Timothy Kelly will step down from his role this summer as President of Atlantis Global after six years and seven months, having served as the leader of Dubai’s leading destination resort. 

Timothy, who joined Atlantis in November 2017, is leaving his position to join City of Dreams Macau as President. 

During his tenure, the Atlantis brand experienced record-breaking financial, guest service and colleague satisfaction results across the portfolio. He led major growth initiatives including the 2023 opening of the ultra-luxury Atlantis the Royal hotel, which was named among the inaugural World’s 50 Best Hotels rank, and received the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award in the very first year of operation. 

Timothy directed many resort enhancements transforming Atlantis Dubai properties into a gastronomical hub with star-studded celebrity chef restaurants, expanding Aquaventure into the largest waterpark in the world, and implementing the award-winning sustainability project, Atlantis Atlas Project.

Philippe Zuber, CEO, of Kerzner International said: "We thank Tim for his dedication and hard work at Kerzner International. Under his leadership, Tim ensured Atlantis, The Palm continued to outperform its own impressive figures year-on-year, and he oversaw the record-breaking opening of yet another icon in Dubai, Atlantis The Royal. 

"When Tim departs this July 2024, he will leave behind a team of legacy-makers, empowered to keep pushing boundaries. On behalf of everyone at Kerzner, we wish him the absolute best in his next chapter."

Commenting on his departure, Timothy Kelly said: “It has been a privilege and a pleasure to serve as President of Atlantis for the last six years, and it’s with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from this position at the end of July. Working alongside our ownership, Kerzner International and the Atlantis team has been a true career highlight, and the major accomplishments, launches, and accolades achieved in our quest to be the world’s leading entertainment destination have been incredible. 

"I want to express my appreciation to our ownership and Kerzner International for their commitment to Atlantis Dubai’s growth and advancement, and to our talented colleagues around the world for their unwavering professionalism, and dedication to excellence. I am incredibly proud of our achievements in transforming the Atlantis brand into one of the most powerful integrated resorts in the world today.  

"I extend my best wishes and sincere gratitude to everyone across the business, and I wish the entire team continued success in their future of growth and unlimited possibilities for the Atlantis brand.”
