A Georgetown University graduate who has lived in seven countries, Bingle has always had a passion for travel, luxury and hospitality. He began his career with Four Seasons at the iconic Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills , where he was promoted seven times in seven years throughout the Rooms Division. In 2003, Bingle was asked to reopen Four Seasons Hotel Prague after the city was severely damaged in the 2002 floods, as Front Office Manager and Director of Housekeeping.
After 10 years in city hotels, Bingle asked to gain valuable resort experience at one of the brand’s flagship and most successful properties, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo. Eleven months after managing more than 300 employees in the Rooms Division as Assistant Director, Bingle saw the importance of the residential component to the industry and accepted the position of Director of Residences in 2006.
Bingle received the opportunity to manage his own property with Four Seasons in 2011 and jumped at the challenge to join Four Seasons Hotel Carmelo, Uruguay, the brand’s second hotel in South America. While in Uruguay, he was responsible for a public space and restaurant renovation. In March of 2015, Bingle led the transition of the company’s departure from Carmelo. Bingle managed an extensive critical path allowing for a successful transition out of the property he managed for four years. he added his four-legged best friend to his family while living Uruguay, Rufus, a 200 pound English mastiff.
After transitioning the Resort in South America, Bingle came full circle back to California where it all began with Four Seasons. He spent one year as the Hotel Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto, overseeing the operation and leading a rooms and meeting space renovation.
He takes pride in his accomplishments, but when asked what he loves most about his career he said, “The people. Our guests and employees, it’s why I love coming to work.” Bingle says he loves the feel and vibe of San Francisco, but remains a resident of Palo Alto where Rufus has a big yard to play in. He says, “I look forward to meeting all my new San Francisco guests and residents and hopefully bringing new ideas from his travels throughout Four Seasons worldwide to the Hotel.”
