Joerg Rodig appointed General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco

Joerg Rodig

Most recently, he was General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Whistler. A dynamic leader whose reputation as an innovator has made lasting impressions with his team, Rodig brings more than 20 years of global hospitality, food & beverage, and finance experience to the property.

“Leading the iconic Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco in the heart of the city is a dream come true and a huge honour” shares Rodig. “I can’t wait to dive in, get to know my team, the community, and fall further in love with the vibrant culture, active vibe, incredible food scene and dynamic people. It’s really my kind of destination.”

Rodig will lead all aspects of the recently redesigned hotel operation, as well as stakeholder and community relationships. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel features California cuisine at MKT Restaurant-Bar; complimentary access to the best fitness club in San Francisco, Equinox; and a central location from which to explore the city.

“For me, innovation triggers excitement and builds energy, and I hope that I can bring that energy to San Francisco,” said Rodig. Four Seasons is one of the key players in the destination – we see it not just as a privilege, but a responsibility in how we contribute to San Francisco.”

Rodig led Four Seasons Resort Whistler to stand tall with global talent – hosting events with culinary stars from Four Seasons Lanai, Maui, Vail, Jackson Hole, Westlake and, of course, San Francisco for Bici Gusti, Cornucopia Food & Wine Festival and a festive pop-up restaurant, The Cabin.

Known for his leadership role in bringing a sense of place, taste and ownership to his properties in Vancouver and Whistler, Rodig takes great pride in celebrating local talent, boosting regional bounty and making real connections with his signature enthusiasm for staff, residents, and guests.

“Since joining Four Seasons, I’ve been fortunate to have great mentors along the way. It’s been my goal to give back, and to invest in people to help shape the paths of future hoteliers,” continues Rodig.

Born and raised in Germany, Rodig grew up in food and beverage, with parents and grandparents in the restaurant business. He knew as early as age 10 that it was something he wanted to pursue.

What began as a Room Service Assistant Manager position in Boston, morphed into positions in finance departments at Four Seasons properties in Nevis, Austin and Palo Alto before moving to Vancouver as Director of Finance in 2009. In 2014, Rodig was promoted to Hotel Manager in Vancouver, where he was prior to Four Seasons Resort Whistler.

“At Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, we have a great canvas for service innovation and an opportunity to create memorable experiences for our guests through our employees. I look forward to sharing these stories and connecting guests with this world-class destination,” said Rodig.
