Heller’s career spans over 20 years at some of the world’s most prestigious and glamorous venues including Villa Romana and The Strand in Saint Tropez, the Eiffel Café in Nice, Ganesha in Miami, Dorrego Lounge in Buenos Aires and most recently held the position of VIP and Communication Manager of the infamous Nikki Beach in Saint Tropez, where he was instrumental in the brand going global.
“The team at Okku has already proved it’s got what it takes to be one of the leading venues in the UAE, we want to continue building from these successes to keep the brand at the top of the hospitality ladder. With Heller’s international experience and passion to continually elevate venues to the next level, we are certain he will offer great support and leadership,” said Markus Thesleff, Co-Founder of Okku.
A highly experienced management team borne from Michelin Star restaurants in London, Paris and New York, such as Cipriani, Tamarind, Sketch, I-Thai, L’Entranger and Les Elysées du Verney, work together to create the next worldwide dining phenomenon that is Okku.
“The fact that Okku is one of the few locally created brands, and has achieved international recognition within such a short time, makes this an excellent opportunity to demonstrate how Dubai can bring together a myriad of cultures, experience, flavours and tastes to create an exceptional brand and product, which can be taken globally. I am confident that Okku and the city will continue to make waves in the culinary world and I look forward to being a part of it,” commented Heller.
