With a tenure in Four Seasons that began in 2001, Martin Cody brings a wealth of experience, expertise and passion to Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai that is sure to continue the property’s success and special place in the hearts of its guests.
The new General Manager’s career experience reads like a list of renowned Four Seasons properties globally: Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane; Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa; Four Seasons Resort Lanai; Four Seasons Resort Langkawi; Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru; and Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti. It is this brand loyalty and career longevity that cements Cody as the most suitable person to take the property forward, particularly during a time of intense competition and change in the China luxury hospitality scene.
Originally from Kilkenny in Ireland, Cody embraces challenges, as evidenced in his personal life, having climbed Mount Kilimanjaro twice and scaled Mount Meru as well as Machu Picchu in Peru. Of his new adventure into China, Cody says “Shanghai is such an energetic and vibrant city that I so look forward to exploring. It has great cultural hot spots to discover while at the same time offering such a modern city experience with ultra-luxury hotels, restaurants and shopping. The Shanghai market appeals to all travellers, those on business trips to those visiting to explore and enjoy the city. Four Seasons Hotel Pudong is perfectly located to cater to all types of guests coming to visit the city.”
Cody’s knowledge in luxury hospitality and diversity of Four Seasons experience is set to make Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai, “one to watch” as with an already enviable offering of luxurious guest rooms, dining options and lifestyle experiences, the property has garnered loyal affection from a discerning clientele base.
