Adrian Messerli

Named Regional Vice President and General Manager
At Four Seasons Hotel Madrid, Spain

Adrian Messerli

Four Seasons veteran Adrian Messerli has been named Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Madrid, scheduled to open on September 25, 2020. The company's first hotel in Spain opens following a seven-year restoration of seven historic buildings in the heart of the capital, debuting a new open-air rooftop restaurant by celebrated Spanish Chef Dani Garcia, as well a spectacular four-level spa retreat.

Swiss born and educated, the multi-lingual Messerli has a Bachelor's Degree in international Hospitality Management from Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne following his training as a chef, and it's no surprise that he's particularly excited to work with Dani Garcia and his team at Dani, as well as the Hotel's additional outlets Isa and El Patio.

Having been recruited by Four Seasons in 2005, he's travelled the world, increasing his responsibilities in assignments from the United States to the Caribbean and South America, Europe, the Middle East and the Indian Ocean, where he earned his first General Manager position at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles before moving to Shanghai, China. He is now returning to Europe to open the company's first property in Spain.
