To call Neil Jacobs a hospitality veteran is an understatement. He spent 14 years with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. He ended his run there as senior vice president of operations Asia Pacific to join Starwood Capital Group as president of global hotel operations. In his five years at Starwood, he developed the successful Baccarat Hotel and 1 Hotels brands. Clearly, Jacobs is fluent in the language of luxury (as well as in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and Bahasa Indonesia). But in 2012, he made a subtle pivot, joining forces with Pegasus Capital Advisors, which purchased Six Senses Resorts & Spas. Back then, the company was small—mostly beachfront resorts in Southeast Asia. But all along, since its founding in 1995, the Six Senses mission has been to promote personal well-being and the health of our planet. Jacobs’s goal was to fortify that vision while expanding and diversifying locations.
