We believe in craftsmanship - where gardeners can be artists, managers can be maestros and that our employees passions will be remembered long after they leave us. We stand by the Golden Rule - treat everyone the way we want to be treated. Our culture fosters an environment where employees can grow and thrive - helping to enrich the guest experience and the employee experience. Four Seasons has been on the Great Place to work list for twenty two consecutive years - come find out why.
Four Seasons provides its customers with year-round opulence. The company manages some 85 luxury hotels and resorts in more than 30 countries. Most properties are operated under the Four Seasons name, but some are Regent hotels. It has ownership interests in only about half of its properties, having shifted from a hotel owner to a hotel operator in the 1990s. In 2007 Four Seasons Hotels board members took the company private in a deal worth nearly $4 billion. Microsoft founder Bill Gates (through his private holding company Cascade Investment) and Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal's Kingdom Hotels together own 95% of the company, in equal shares. Company founder and chairman Isadore Sharp owns the rest. – less
