Seychelles most awaited resort, Six Senses Zil Pasyon, is delighted to announce the arrival of management couple Executive Assistant Manager Food and Beverage Chef Richard Lee and Executive Assistant Manager Rooms Lizzie Lee, coming on board for the 2016 opening.
No strangers to Six Senses, both Lizzie and Richard joined the brand for the opening of Evason Ma’In Jordan back in 2008; Richard Lee as an opening executive chef and Lizzie Lee as revenue manager, and they have continued their journey with the Six Senses family since then.
Richard’s transfer as Executive Assistant Manager Food and Beverage of Six Senses Zil Pasyon places him in his fourth Six Senses property. He has more than 17 years of professional experience in the kitchen working with several leading brands including multiple Michelin-starred restaurants and hotels throughout the United Kingdom. Prior to joining Six Senses Zil Pasyon in March 2016, Richard held the position of executive chef and brand champion at Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman for two years after transferring from Six Senses Con Dao, Vietnam where he worked for three years.
Food and beverage is an indispensable part of Richard’s life. Graduated from Birmingham College of Food in the UK, he brings an extensive knowledge in pre-opening, strategic culinary planning, concept, budgeting, recruitment, training, and leading highly-motivated culinary brigades and front of house teams to excellence.
Lizzie Lee brings forth her experience at Six Senses Con Dao, as executive assistant manager in charge of rooms for three years, which included the resort’s opening, and at Six Senses Zighy Bay where she held the same position for the past two years. She graduated from the University of Gloucester and prior to her international exposure in 2008, Lizzie worked out of her home country in the UK from 1996, in rooms and revenue management for Handpicked and Hilton Hotels.
In their spare time, the couple enjoys listening to music and share their passion of travelling around the world. Lizzie likes singing, snorkelling and hiking, while Richard is a fan of football, rugby and cricket.
General Manager Edouard Grosmangin welcomed the executives to the resort just in time for the pre-opening, saying, “After a successful collaboration in Vietnam for 18 months with two individual talents, it’s a pleasure to welcome this dynamic married couple to our team.”
