Macfarlane’s illustrious hospitality career began as an overnight receptionist in Canada more than 24 years ago. She joined the Four Seasons family in 2007 as the Director of Rooms at the former Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, before receiving her promotion to Hotel Manager in 2010. Continuing to gain experience and grow in the ranks, she left to become Hotel Manager at the iconic Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel before receiving her first General Manager position at Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe.
Believing in the “one team, one dream” philosophy, Macfarlane knows that together, anything is possible. Having recruited and developed many of Four Seasons outstanding managers worldwide, Marfarlane looks forward to mentoring, coaching and building relationships with her new team in Vail, as well as in the community.
As an active member in the Santa Fe community, Marfarlane’s roles included the Chairperson of the Santa County Lodgers Tax Advisory Board, Business Council member of both the New Mexico Museum Association and Santa Fe Opera, as well as being a strong supporter of Cooking with Kids and Partners in Education. Eager to become invested in her new home, Macfarlane says “my family and I are elated to be joining the Vail community. Both my husband and I were actively involved in Santa Fe and we cannot wait to do the same here in Vail. For us it’s about getting to know the people and celebrating the destination.”
Marfarlane will be joined by her husband Doug, two sons Owen and Max, and dog Eggsy. “My family and I love being outdoors. We are big skiers and hikers so we’re excited to explore all Vail has to offer.” And for Marfarlane who grew up in a city, she says “the idea of waking up and seeing a deer in your backyard, never gets old for me! My husband and I are thrilled to raise our family here and really embrace the mountain lifestyle.” Marfarlane will begin her new role at the Resort and in the community on May 30, 2018.
