Reto Moser has been appointed General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Moscow
Used to the demands of iconic downtown properties, Reto’s new role – his first as Managing Director – will see him take responsibility for the hotel’s 180 rooms and suites, four restaurants, seven conference rooms and a space 3,000-square-meter (32,000-square-foot) spa, all just a one-minute walk from the Kremlin and Red Square.
It’s a very different scene from his upbringing in the beautiful city of Bern, “the gateway to the Alps”, and his early career as a chef, including time spent at the historic Hotel Schweizerhof. After seven years in the kitchen, his desire to travel and his fascination with world history and culture led him to the prestigious Swiss Hotel Management School in Lucerne. After graduation, he began his managerial career in the United States, specializing in food and beverage operations.
His Four Seasons journey began in 2004, with the brand’s family warmth and impeccable service proving to be a perfect match for Reto’s ambition and loyalty. Seventeen years later – via Provence (his “happy place”) as well as Beirut, Bangkok and Koh Samui – it is his friendly approach and his desire to support the talents who continue to support the happy work environment that ‘he is renowned for creating. Fluent in German, English and French, he is also determined to add some Russian to his repertoire.
When it’s his turn to explore a city, Reto starts with his cuisine. A true gourmet and culinary connoisseur, he is particularly eager to sample Moscow’s inventive and flamboyant food scene. As an avid cyclist, he will also cycle the city streets alongside his equally adventurous wife, Naowarat.
