Bob Suri has almost 30 years in hospitality, half of which he’s been with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. His journey with the company started with food and beverage at the flagship property in Toronto, before moving as Director of Food & Beverage at Four Seasons Resort Whistler, delivering impeccable service standards at North America's leading ski resort.

In 2008, Bob moved to the Middle East leading the food and beverage service at the former Four Seasons Hotel Damascus, where he infused his rich experience and delivered great service, taking in the Arabian hospitality and culture. From 2011 to 2014 he took over as the Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles and chaired a unique marine environmental education initiative for coral propagation and beach profiling, and following that, helped bring the new Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay to life. Before moving to Baku, Azerbaijan, Bob was the Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach.

After his journey between seven countries and four continents, Bob Suri was appointed to the position of General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Baku, bringing his deep and diverse global experience along with him.

"I felt the hospitality and warmth of Azerbaijanis from the very first moments of my arrival and I am enjoying getting to know this country's culture and people better."

In his capacity as General Manager, Bob is responsible for the seamless operation of a Beaux Arts–style Hotel located in the enigmatic capital of Azerbaijan. Four Seasons Hotel Baku features 171 exceptionally spacious guest rooms and suites – providing all accommodations with elevated views of the historical Old City and the boundless Caspian Sea.

One of the key ingredients to Bob’s success is his passion for what he does. Goal-oriented and focused on getting ahead of the competition, he always aims to be clear, aiming for the best for his fellow colleagues so as for the precious guests. "My main goal is to help people be their true selves and show everything they are capable of, without fear of other's opinions or judgments. I believe that it's the only way we will be able to reach success in everything we aim for."

In his free time Bob Suri loves watching cricket and cooking. But most of all, he enjoys spending time with his wife Sonia, two sons Rushil and Savar and of course, their integral family member – their dog Cuddles. "My family and particularly my wife of almost 25 years are my rock. Without their support and belief I would not be able to achieve any success."
