All three of us began our hotel career at Sonargaon PanPacific Hotel at varioustimes in various functional areas. While our length of service varies we were all colleagues in the early 90s. One of us was senior and mentor to the others but we have always maintained collegiality and professionalism. Later in the mid-90s we banded together to establish the first ever full serviced apartment and Boutique Hotel, Best Eastern, in Baridhara, Dhaka. Our individual careers took us on different paths yet our friendship and association remained intact.
