NEW FOOD SERVICE DIRECTOR BEGINS TENURE AT RESIDENTIAL DINING HALLS

After a semester-long search for a food service director to lead the residential dining team, UH Dining Services has brought Mohamed Jouini on to fill the role.

Jouini graduated from the Tunisian Air Force Academy and holds a distinguished diploma from the Defense Language Institute in San Antonio, Texas. He began his food service career as a catering manager for the Omni Hotel in San Antonio and joined ARAMARK, the company that currently provides food services at the University of Houston, in 1995. Jouini’s most recent position was as a residential food service director at New Mexico State University.

When asked about his leadership style, Jouini said, “I see myself as an enabler to happiness and productivity for people that work with me, and therefore I have an emotional responsibility to them and the people who are dependent on them.”

Jouini is not only focused on improving employee engagement and satisfaction in the dining halls, he also hopes to translate that to a more satisfying customer experience.

“I am looking forward to contributing to the success of UH and bringing the latest and the greatest in culinary expertise combined with an unmatched customer service attitude,” said Jouini.
