Jean-Pierre Soutric has been promoted to Vice President Corporate & Travel Industry Sales – Europe.
Reflecting on his promotion, Soutric said: “Four Seasons is not the usual employer – it’s much more than a luxury brand and a quality business. It’s been engraved in my heart for fifteen years now and I have no recollection of a single day when I haven’t been proud to be employed by this unique hotel group.”
Soutric began his career with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in 1995 to open Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris. He created a sales and marketing team that under his leadership helped establish the Hotel as number one in Paris. In 2008 he joined the Europe, Middle East and Africa regional sales team as Director of Corporate & Travel Industry Sales based in the Paris Worldwide Sales Office, where he also assumed responsibility for the regional team there.
Soutric has been instrumental in developing the company’s European Preferred Partner Program. His tenacity and determination to form successful working relationships with key partners in every corner of Europe has resulted in 75 Preferred Partner agencies in 18 countries across the European Region. He also monitors strategic relationships with leading European tour operators active in the luxury segment.
According to Susan Helstab, Executive Vice President, Marketing: “Jean-Pierre’s passion for his clients is relentless and only eclipsed by his passion for Four Seasons. He is a genuine ambassador for the company.”
