(30 Aug 2021) The Four Seasons Hotel Doha has appointed Shadi Suleman as General Manager.
A familiar face in the Qatari capital, Shadi worked as Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Doha before moving to Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria in 2017 as General Manager.
“I’m thrilled to be working again with all the great people at Four Seasons Hotel Doha,” Shadi said. “It’s an amazing multicultural team, representing more than 60 different nationalities. Their passion and dedication are really the secret ingredients that make Four Seasons so successful.”
A long-serving Four Seasons veteran, Shadi first joined the company in August 2002 at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre. Then, in 2005, he returned home to Syria to be part of the pre-opening team at Four Seasons Hotel Damascus (formerly a Four Seasons hotel).
In 2007, he joined another pre-opening mission with Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus and in 2008 made the move to Four Seasons Hotel Doha as Director of Rooms, becoming Hotel Manager in 2013. Shadi’s first GM assignment was at Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano in 2017.
“Shadi has all the qualities of a successful leader,” said Simon Casson, President, Hotel Operations – Europe, Middle East and Africa for Four Seasons. “He brings the charisma, creativity and enthusiastic attitude that naturally inspire his team to give their best. Under Shadi’s leadership in Alexandria, the Hotel elevated its product and established an even higher standard of service. Along the way, he helped develop an incredible team of Four Seasons talent. I can’t wait to see what Shadi will accomplish now that he’s returning to Doha.”
