Appointed General Manager
At Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
Born in Frankfurt to Greek parents, Ioannidis grew up in Germany and Greece, and then headed to Canada to earn his hospitality degree and launch his hotel career. He joined Four Seasons in 1998 as Director of Restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, and then rose through the ranks in the food and beverage divisions of urban hotels and a resort in North America before heading to Azerbaijan and his first assignment as General Manager, at Four Seasons Hotel Baku.
He went on to open Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island as General Manager in 2016, and followed with opening Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, which began welcoming guests this year. The last assignment was particularly inviting for Ioannidis, who notes, "as a proud Greek, introducing Four Seasons highest standards of luxury and service to Greece for the first time was really special for me."
