Mazen Saleh

Named General Manager
At Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale - FL, USA

Mazen Saleh

Eighteen-year Four Seasons veteran Mazen Saleh has been named General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale. The brand's fourth hotel in South Florida is anticipated to make its debut in late 2021, bringing an inspiring sense of possibility to this next-generation coastal city.

First joining Four Seasons in 2003, it's the only company Saleh has ever worked for, a testament to both his loyalty and admirable reputation. Beginning as a management trainee in Sharm El Sheikh, Saleh quickly rose through food and beverage positions while jumping on task force opportunities at openings in Mauritius, Beirut, Alexandria and Istanbul. He joined the reopening of Four Seasons Resort Nevis as Assistant Director of Food and Beverage in 2010, and three years later took the same position in Austin for a city hotel experience. In 2015, a promotion to Director of Food and Beverage at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach drew him to South Florida where he was later promoted to Resort Manager in 2017. A respected and rising leader, Saleh was chosen to lead the way at Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Fort Lauderdale as its opening General Manager.

Saleh's creative side and collaborative spirit are among his exceptional hotelier qualities, driving his ability to partner with the property's global visionaries as well as build his preopening team and create experiences property-wide, from Fort Lauderdale's best ocean-view dining to the city's most prestigious beachfront setting for meetings and events.
