Graduating from the Westminster College of Hotel Management in London, Mark began his hospitality career with The Savoy group of hotels where he earned the prestigious hotel management apprenticeship as a chef; a role that provided him with a great grounding in food and beverage operations.
With hospitality now firmly in his blood, Mark’s passion inspired him to further his career and learn more aspects of the business, growing his expertise in the rooms division plus sales and marketing. He brings this extensive experience and passion to his role at Six Senses Zil Pasyon, where he will further develop the exceptional guest experiences offered at the resort.
Mark’s intriguing background saw him born in the United Kingdom, raised in Kenya and now calling Australia his permanent home. He’s very passionate about exploring islands and untouched natural environments which makes him a perfect fit for his new home of Félicité. His other interests of fly fishing and 4x4 driving will have to wait for the moment.
It’s not difficult to see why Mark’s favorite quote is “Nothing comes easy and hard work always pays off”.
