Associate Director Operations, Wild Wadi Waterpark

Sasho began his journey in Aquatics back in 2008 as an Ellis & Associates Shallow Water lifeguard working at Wild Wadi Waterpark. Sometime after Sasho was provided the opportunity to become an ILTP® Instructor, where he fell in love with learning about the intricate lifeguarding philosophy. Prior to joining Wild Wadi, Sasho’s understanding of lifeguarding was nonexistent and movie based, however, he recognizes the Ellis & Associates family for giving him the instruments and philosophy to set up lifeguards and facilities for success. Sasho has spent his entire career with Wild Wadi WaterPark and Jumeirah Group and to this day says he is “in love with the place”. Sasho currently serves as the Associate Director of Operations, overseeing aquatic safety at Wild Wadi and the group's Jumeirah Beach properties. Sasho holds E&A Instructor Trainer, CPO, and Rescue Diver certifications. Throughout his career, he has been involved with the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson, UAE Lifeguard competitions, and Regional ILTP® Instructor In-services.
