His career with Four Seasons spanned nearly a quarter century, and now Jose Silva has joined Jumeirah. The Dubai-based luxury hotel company has announced Silva’s appointment as the new chief executive officer. Previously, Silva served as Four Seasons’ regional vice president overseeing France, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. And you may have seen him at Four Seasons George V (currently in the midst of an exciting spa renovation), as he also helmed the Paris palace hotel as general manager. Under his watch, the George V made headlines for becoming the first luxury hotel in Europe with three Michelin-starred restaurants (the property boasts a total of five stars).

Jumeirah operates a portfolio of 19 hotels and resorts, including the flagship Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. There are 25 properties under development including St. Petersburg, Russia; Bali, Indonesia; Muscat Bay, Oman; Aqaba, Jordan; and multiple locations in China. In Abu Dhabi, the Jumeirah resort slated to open on Sa’adiyat Island has been getting lots of buzz because of its location near the new Louvre museum. In his role as CEO of Jumeirah, Jose Silva will be responsible for the company’s international expansion and branding.

As quoted in the official press release, Silva said, “I have always admired Jumeirah for its “dare to be different” culture and its forward-looking vision.”
