Experience

Meet Jade

I am very proud to work for a company that puts such emphasis on successful women in leadership roles.

- Jade Guinchard, Director of Front Office


I started my career with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts seven years ago at the Fairmont Banff Springs in February 2015, where I held both Rooms Blocker and Front Office Supervisor positions. In the Fall of 2016, I transferred to Fairmont Empress as Assistant Front Office Manager. In July of 2018, I transferred to The Plaza, A Fairmont Managed Hotel in New York City and held Rooms Communication Manager and Assistant Director of Front Office positions. In May of 2021, I started as Director of Front Office at Fairmont Royal York.

I am very proud to work for a company that puts such emphasis on successful women in leadership roles. I have had the opportunity to be led and mentored by strong women within Accor. I believe that leading with your heart and being genuine is the key to developing a great team. It is best to be transparent and support the team in removing barriers of them achieving expectations and goals. I aspire one day to be Director of Rooms, and furthermore General Manager as my long-term goal.

International Women’s Day is a day of awareness and recognition of the success of women across all industries, both professional and personally.
