Born in Kuwait in 1977, Bseiso holds a High Diploma in Food and Beverage Management from the American Academy for Hotel Management and a certificate in Hospitality Supervision from the American Hotel & Lodging Association in Amman, finishing the course with honours.
Commenting on the appointment, Livio Faverio, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Amman, said, “Khaled has played a big role in shaping the dynamics of our Hotel’s F&B team and we are excited to have him take the reins in leading the operations of this department. The fact that he has been a part of the team for many years in positions of increasing responsibility makes him extremely familiar with the complexities of our F&B operation and this puts him in a strong position to continue to run it very successfully.”
Bseiso said, "Four Seasons Hotel Amman has a formidable reputation in the city’s dining scene, one that I am keen to live up to and build on. We have an excellent team here in Amman, and having worked with many of its members for several years, I am excited to see how we can take this operation to the next level in terms of offering our guests a superior dining experience in both product and service.”
In line with its reputation for attracting top-of-line talent, Four Seasons Hotel Amman is also pleased to welcome Chef Anas Qsairi to the position of Pastry Chef. The 34-year-old chef is the first Jordanian chef to lead a Four Seasons pastry kitchen. Chef Anas brings many years experience in the precise art of pastry and dessert creation, having launched his career more than seventeen years ago. In 1999 he joined the Amman Marriot Hotel as assistant pastry and dessert chef before moving to Sweet Dreams Shop in the United States in 2004. In 2008, he joined Four Seasons Hotel Amman as Pastry Sous Chef.
Bseiso added, "Chef Anas’ enthusiasm and proficiency in the dessert kitchen has made him one of the most sought after pastry chefs in the city. We were very pleased he accepted the challenge of leading our pastry team."
