Tanaka looks forward to new challenges

DENNY Akira Tanaka has joined the ranks of Radisson Blu Fiji Resort.

A former staff member of the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa, Mr Tanaka is now the director of food and beverage at Radisson.

“Radisson Blu Fiji has a great team to be with and they are an A-team and I am looking forward to working with them,” he said.

“They certainly have the right direction in terms of where they want to go with the property so I believe that is a very good way forward the team has.”

Mr Tanaka said he had been in the industry for quite a while now.

“I started in the restaurant business, basically opening restaurants and handing them over and kept doing this in Japan and a little bit overseas too.

“After that, I had the opportunity to join InterContinental and I was with the group for about 12 years. With them I was able to travel to quite a few places around the world including Bahrain, Dubai, Fiji and Jakarta and back to Fiji.”

With his new role, Mr Tanaka is responsible for the three main restaurants on Radisson, which are all highly rated on TripAdvisor.
