The team at Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh has the pleasure of welcoming Greg Pirkle as the new General Manager at the Red Sea haven.Pirkle’s 25 years with Four Seasons have been divided between resorts and hotels; from shorts-and-sandals destinations in Hawaii, the Bahamas and Malaysia to necktie-expected addresses in Boston, New York, Jakarta and Riyadh.
For the past two and a half years, Pirkle has been based in Bahrain – opening the magnificent Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, rising 68 stories on its own island. Before Bahrain, he first became a General Manager in Malaysia and the beautiful beaches of Langkawi and then moved to Riyadh in 2011 where he was the GM for three years.
Before graduating from Indiana’s Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management, Pirkle realised his passion for hospitality during his high school working days, and has successfully pursued a career in hotel management ever since. After graduation, he first started with Ritz-Carlton, which in turn opened the door to Four Seasons; Pirkle’s two plus decades with Four Seasons brings a wealth of experience into resort management.
When not assuring the most luxurious experience for guests, Pirkle and his wife Sherry care for feral, or stray, cats. With a real devotion to the initiative, the couple always supported the notion in significant movements at every destination they were in. Pirkle treats his three pets the way they should be in their new Middle Eastern home.
The team at Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh warmly welcomes Greg and his wife Sherry to their new Red Sea haven, and to the Sharm El Sheikh family.
