Neil’s passion for wellness, sustainability and making travel purposeful led him to Six Senses in 2012. Ever since, his focus has been to elevate the brand in terms of responsible design, green initiatives and wellness programming. Under his leadership, the company has opened resorts in some of the world’s most beautiful destinations including Bhutan, Fiji, India, Israel, Portugal, Turkey and the Seychelles, with new properties confirmed in Belize, France, Iceland, Italy, Japan, and the Galapagos. He has sought to broaden the company’s global footprint, enabling people to experience Six Senses in gateway cities and adapting the brand’s values to sophisticated and contemporary urban environments, with New York, Rome, Lisbon and London on their way. Neil’s vision extends beyond a super high-end hotel and spa company. He believes in creating demand through constant innovation, initiatives and programming that are meaningful and tailored for each guest’s health and well-being. Equally important is the requirement that local communities benefit and that resorts operate in harmony with the natural world. Together with his team, he continues to drive the agenda of wellness, sustainability and out-of-the-ordinary experiences - always with a purpose of allowing guests to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them. When it comes to people, Neil believes that it is the company’s obligation to help hosts develop to their absolute maximum potential and he strives for Six Senses to provide an environment in which they thrive and feel inspired. Before joining Six Senses, Neil’s global career included leadership roles at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, where he oversaw all of Asia Pacific and launched many new properties, followed by Starwood Capital Group where he led their luxury hotels and the development of the Baccarat Hotels and 1 Hotels brands. Having studied Hotel Management at Westminster University, French Civilization at La Sorbonne University and Italian culture and art in Florence, Neil speaks six languages and knows his vermicelli from his Botticelli.
