Red Sea Global Appoints Sébastien Carre as Group Head of Hospitality

Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind the regenerative tourism destinations The Red Sea and Amaala, has announced the appointment of Sébastien Carre as Group Head of Hospitality. In this key role, Sébastien will lead the hospitality function for all RSG destinations and self-operated properties with the aim of elevating Saudi Arabia’s position in global tourism.

Sébastien brings more than 30 years of experience in luxury hospitality to RSG. A graduate of VATEL Hospitality & Tourism Business School in Lyon, France, his impressive background includes notable leadership roles in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Indian Ocean, and Pacific Islands. This experience demonstrates his ability to lead in diverse and dynamic markets.

“This year Thuwal Private Retreat and Shebara will both open to guests. More RSG-operated properties will follow soon after. As this collection of self-operated, luxury hospitality properties move from development into operations, the deep experience Sébastien brings with him, coupled with the innate hospitality that Saudi has long been famous for, ensures we are ready to delight our visitors,” said John Pagano, Group CEO at Red Sea Global.

Before joining RSG, Sébastien served as Regional Vice President at Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts. He oversaw properties in the Seychelles, Abu Dhabi, Tanzania, Azerbaijan, and South Africa. In addition, he led a comprehensive reinvention of the brand’s presence in Mauritius, where under his leadership the resort achieved record-breaking results. He has also held leadership roles at Four Seasons in Johannesburg, Sharm El Sheikh, Bora Bora, Provence, and Washington DC, among others.

His addition to the RSG team reflects the company’s commitment to bringing in top-tier talent to drive innovation and success in the hospitality sector. RSG is planning to hire over 700 hospitality professionals in the next 12 months.
