Marie, born in France, started her career in food and beverage in China and spent several years working in different hotels across Asia before accepting her first role with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in 2017, where she joined the company as a pre-opener and opener. Manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Tunis.
Marie has always relished a challenge, successfully opening the hotel and leading the Tunis team for three years before being appointed to her most recent role in Sydney – closer to home for her Australian husband. The change of scenery has been a constant throughout Marie’s hotel career. From Hong Kong to Bangkok, Phuket to Malaysia, Tunis to Sydney, she has held leadership positions in several countries, fueling a passion for travel and culture, rooted in her love for the hospitality industry.
Her third appointment with Four Seasons at the historic Ten Trinity Square in London was an exciting stop for Marie and her family.
With three catering outlets, a private members club with its own catering facilities and a very active catering and events department, Marie has also been able to leverage her background and experience in the catering business.
Outside of work, Fleury maintains her sense of balance by spending time with her family. Passionate about trail walking, she enjoys the physical, mental and emotional challenge of routes covering various terrains, slopes, levels of difficulty and distances of up to 100 kilometres. “The reward comes not just from a sense of personal accomplishment, but from being part of a team and being close to nature while traversing different environments,” comments Marie. It’s no different from the rewards she enjoys as a Managing Director – working alongside a diverse team in an ever-changing environment.
Although she has spent many years traveling and living in Asia and Australia, Marie is looking forward to putting down roots in London, discovering new restaurants and exploring the city with her husband and two children.
