Hawaii, Maui, U.S.A., 2017-Apr-28 — /Travel PR News/ — Jean Claude Wietzel, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, has been promoted to Regional Vice President, effective April 3, 2017. He will continue as General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Maui, and his regional responsibilities include Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, as announced by Vince Parrotta, President, Hotel Operations – Americas at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
Wietzel joined the Four Seasons family in 2002 as the Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel New York, followed by the same position at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris. In 2007, Jean Claude was promoted to General Manager at Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh, followed by Four Seasons Resort Marrakech where he served as the opening General Manager.
“I’ve had to fill pretty large shoes here in Maui and in my other assignments. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my tenure at Four Seasons Resort Maui and will continue to challenge our staff to provide the impeccable service for which we are known the world over. Now, I’m setting my sights on working more closely with the excellent teams at our properties on the islands of Hawaii and Oahu,” says Wietzel. “I believe the outcome will be greater synergy.”
Since his 2013 arrival on Maui, Wietzel has embraced the aloha spirit and built a strong commitment to the local community. He has also completed with his team a floor-to-ceiling transformation of the Resort’s guest rooms and suites, along with numerous enhancements in the public areas. The nearly two-year project has resulted in a human-centred design, with each element thoughtfully chosen to create the best possible guest experience. Every detail honours the beauty and magic of Wailea. Those enhancements, combined with the reputation of a dedicated team offering a genuine quality of service, will surely contribute in bringing the Resort to new heights and strengthen its positioning as the only Five Diamond and Five-Star hotel on Maui.
Born in Nice, France, Wietzel grew up above a bakery owned by his parents, who exposed him to the joys of good food, fine wine and frequent travel. He has an MBA from the Institute of Hotel Management Cornell l’ESSEC in Cergy, France and is also an accomplished musician, having studied piano at the Nice Music Conservatory. He has lived on five continents, is an avid sportsman, and is fluent in French and English with knowledge of Italian and Spanish. He is married to his wife Ratree, and has two children, Loic and Hugo.
