'Melanie was interested in everything and everyone - an attitude that worked well with media and clients. As our firm grew, taking on clients such as The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Melanie worked her way up to account manager.
'In 2003, just as I was about to promote her to account director, she decided to head back to the south coast. I recommended her to an old client, John Stauss at Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, who was opening the chain's first rural UK property in Hampshire.'
Melanie Childs is now spa business development manager for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts.
