Sam Ioannidis Appointed GM of Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt

Mr. Sam Ioannidis has joined the Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh as General Manager.

Sam’s arrival at the beachfront property on the shores of the Red Sea in Egypt is well timed with expansion plans laid out to transform Four Seasons Sharm El Sheikh into the company’s largest resort operation in EMEA.

Born in Frankfurt to Greek parents, Sam grew up in Germany and Greece, and then headed to Canada to earn his hospitality degree and launch his hotel career.

He joined Four Seasons in 1998 as Director of Restaurants at Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, and then rose through the ranks in the F&B divisions of urban hotels and a resort in North America before heading to Azerbaijan and his first assignment as General Manager, at Four Seasons Hotel Baku.

Sam went on to open Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island as General Manager in 2016, and followed with opening Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens, which began welcoming guests earlier this year.

“I’m really quite taken with the beauty of the resort, the wealth of its onsite offerings, as well as the easy proximity to world-class diving sites just off the coast and desert adventures inland,” Sam said. “This is a remarkable setting for locals and international travellers alike to embrace the region and its culture. I walk around in awe of the property and the spirit of the team working together to provide genuine Four Seasons service for guests to explore the destination’s authentic cultural experiences.”
