Thomas-Henry also sits on the executive committee of the Georgia Hotel and Lodging Association and is a member of their Women in Leadership Steering Committee.
“I feel honoured and privileged to take on this role with Four Seasons where I will help to create a lasting legacy for the hotels and resorts I will oversee,” said Thomas-Henry. “Atlanta, Nevis and St. Louis are dynamic destinations full of art, entertainment, culture and business and I look forward working with these talented teams to push the boundaries and achieve even more success.”
Born in St. Thomas, USVI and raised in St. Croix, Thomas-Henry was encouraged by her mother to be the best at whatever she did. After earning her Bachelor of Arts from Pace University, Thomas-Henry went on to receive a Master of Science from Audrey Cohen College in New York. Throughout her career, Thomas-Henry has developed a sharp eye for detail and a dedication to the community she calls home. Under her leadership at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, the hotel’s community outreach team, made up of hotel employees, has logged over 500 hours of service for local organisations across the city.
