Genee Griffiths appointed principal of Westville campus

We’re excited to announce that Genee Griffiths has been appointed principal of The International Hotel School in Westville.

Described by colleagues as energetic, driven and organised, Genee began her career with a B Comm (Business Economics and Marketing) from the University of the Witwatersrand and went on to attain a Higher Diploma in Education (HDE). She’s also currently studying towards an MBA!

Passion for education and business management

After several years in the private sector, Genee branched off into her teaching career, and then went on to owning several businesses with her husband. However, she then decided to combine her passions for education and business management by becoming the campus principal at Rosebank College in Durban in 2007.

Genee was responsible for managing the overall operation of the campus i.e. Financial, Marketing, Student Support, Academics, IT Departments, and the School of Business. In 2011, she joined Damelin College where she was General Manager until the beginning of this year.

Genee says she was drawn to The International Hotel School not only because of better opportunities for herself, but also in light of our great brand reputation and supportive local head office.

Welcome to Westville!

Genee is married and has two children – a 17 year old son, Dylan, and a 15 year old daughter, Simone. Her hobbies include running, playing golf, reading, and cooking.

In addition to sharing good food with family and friends – Italian food, cheese, chocolates and wine – Griffiths enjoys travelling both locally and abroad. Her favourite places include Mpumalanga (Hazyview / Sabie area), the Drakensberg, Cape Town  and the Winelands, and Colorado, where she relishes the golf and swimming in the summer, and skiing in the winter.

We wish Genee Griffiths a warm welcome and are sure she’s going to do great things as the principal of our Westville campus!
