“Always keeping focus on our long-term goals and staying true to our strategic pillars even in challenging times has been the key to the company’s success, and it will continue to be in the years and decades to come.”

John is responsible for the financial activities of the company, including worldwide financial reporting and management, forward planning, taxation and treasury activities, as well as information systems and technology. “We have a strong operating model, a long-term approach to doing business, and we will never sacrifice the quality of our product,” he says. “This combination has helped us achieve our leadership position in the industry today and will propel us forward to meet our goals of further expansion in the future.”

John also oversees the growing Four Seasons residential business, which includes urban and resort complexes around the world, with as many more properties currently in development. “There’s something about planning a new home, a place where families will live and play, that’s really special,” says John. “And the idea of actually living at Four Seasons? That’s amazing.”
