Appointed Chef Concierge
At Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, Canada
As both President of Les Clefs d'Or Canada and global Director of Communications for Les Clefs d’Or, the professional organisation for the world’s best hotel concierges, Avaria will continue to uphold the remarkable reputation held by the Chef Concierge role at the company’s flagship hotel. Avaria is one of only five women who hold the position of President in Les Clef d’Or organisations in 45 countries around the world.
With a successful 18-year career as a stage manager prior to entering hospitality, Avaria has gone from producing theatre to producing meaningful memories for her guests. Soon after graduating from Ryerson University’s hospitality program in 2000, she landed a position at the concierge desk of Renaissance Toronto Hotel at Skydome and the lobby has been her stage ever since.
Prior to making the move to the iconic global hotel company, which Avaria considers the very best in hospitality, she led the concierge team at the InterContinental Hotel Yorkville, where she was recognised as Chef Concierge of the Year by InterContinental Hotels America.
Understanding the Yorkville neighbourhood where Four Seasons Hotel Toronto is also located will continue to be an asset in her new role; however as a leader with Les Clefs d’Or, her reach is global. She is able to contact any number of international partners and colleagues for even the most elusive reservation.Although she has spent most of her life in Toronto, Avaria enjoys spending her days off exploring the city with her young daughter and husband, a Tokyo-trained French chef. It is this insatiable curiosity and consistent drive to provide a "wow experience" for her guests that make Avaria an invaluable new member to the Four Seasons family.
