What inspired my foray into hotel business – US army veteran, Victor Aruwah
Life’s experiences and encounters shape how we think and more often than not, form in our minds the things that eventually make us who we are.
Victor Chiagozem Aruwah, a former US army officer who served for 15 years, is propagating the quality hospitality he enjoyed when he served in the military.
Victor Aruwah, an American citizen born to Nigerian parents, retired from the army at the of 33 in 2012, and joined the United States Directorate of Public Works Installation Management Command Unit, Engineering Division based in Germany.
During his whole experience in the army, he travelled round the world and had the opportunity to experience the best hospitality, which inspired the entrepreneurial spirit in him to replicate the first-class treatments he had enjoyed over the years.
The mechanical engineer is vastly experienced and was in the US army Chemical Operation Specialist for 18 years.
Explaining what inspired him to establish a 32-room bouquet hotel, Hotel Kurvilla in Nanstein Landstuhlhotel, Germany, which he has managed for the past five years, Aruwah said: “I am a United States citizen with Nigerian parents. I am a US Army veteran, following my service for 15 years. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and have earned a master’s degree in mechanical engineering.
“After serving the US Army for 15 years and stationed in many countries I retired in 2012 at age 33 and then joined the United States Directorate of Public Works Installation Management Command Unit, Engineering Division based in Germany,” Aruwah added.
Speaking further, Victor said: “I have travelled to different cities around the world and I have been very lucky to enjoy some of the best hospitality across the world in terms of accommodation, food, and other travelling experience. Hence my desire to replicate the same experience and offer a world-class hospitality experience for work or leisure.
“I have managed this project for nearly five years and it has been a wonderful experience with no service failure or lowering of our standards”, added Victor Aruwah.
