Katie Jacquemin, Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Denver, didn’t always think a career of hospitality was where she was headed. “I initially started down a path to become an engineer because of my strength with math, however after one drafting class, I knew it wasn’t what I wanted to pursue. I decided on hospitality as I thrive on interacting with people, and it’s the best decision I’ve made.”
Not only is Jacquemin skilled with numbers, but her lifelong passion is competitive sailing, a talent that she has applied to her new role as Hotel Manager. “Sailing is an amazing sport, it is as mental as it is physical. You learn many important lessons relevant to the hospitality industry. For instance, how to be a team player, making split second decisions, committing to a strategy and seeing it through, how to win and lose gracefully, and how to hold your ground even while knowingly going into a collision.”
After graduating from college and entering the workforce, Jacquemin began her hospitality career in Vail, Colorado. From Vail she has since moved around to seven properties working in Colorado, Wyoming, and internationally in multiple areas of property management and hotel operations. After years in the mountains, Jacquemin made the move to the Front Range and joined Four Seasons Hotel Denver as the Assistant Director of Rooms in 2015, and was promoted to Director of Rooms in 2017.
Now, as Hotel Manager, Jacquemin strives to lead through values with passion, discipline and purpose. “My vision is to continue to foster an environment where growth and development are strong, priorities are clear and the team is all working in tandem with the same intensity and for the same results.” While hard work is crucial to a team’s success, Jacquemin adds; “Most importantly, the team should have fun! One of the top motivators in a work environment is friendship. If we roll up our sleeves together, laugh together, succeed together, fail together and grow together, the connection is incredible. Guests feel that when they interact with us.”
Jacquemin is a graduate of Michigan State University where she received her Bachelors of Arts Degree from Eli Broad College of Business. When she’s not leading the team at Four Seasons Hotel Denver, Jacquemin can be found spending time with her husband and their young daughter, as well as rock climbing, skiing, and of course, continuing her love of sailing.
