Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre has welcomed Leonardo Concezzi as its new director of F&B.
The Italian-born culinary master will lead all daily operations and management of the hotel’s three distinct restaurants, together with its sizeable banquet operations.
With a career spanning three decades and numerous countries, Concezzi brings extensive experience in the luxury dining sector to the table. His international journey began at the age of 19 when he assumed his first role as a chef in Miami. Concezzi’s natural talent and dedication to his craft soon opened doors to many exciting opportunities, which led to him entering the luxury hotel industry in the year 2000.
Since then, he has further honed his knowledge and skills at renowned five-star properties in Australia, the Bahamas, Italy, Morocco, Syria, Thailand, Turkey and the UAE, with his time in the Middle East providing a valuable opportunity to become familiar with local flavours and culture.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome a craftsman of Leonardo’s calibre to Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre,” the property’s general manager, Guenter Gebhard said. “His extensive international experience and deep knowledge of fine dining will play a key role in further elevating the guest experience in our acclaimed restaurants.”
