Originally joining Four Seasons in 2005 at its Washington, DC address as Senior Catering Sales Manager, Mariam arrived in New York in fall 2014 after achieving success in progressive positions with other hotel companies in Washington and Atlanta.

Born in Kabul, Afghanistan and a graduate of George Mason University in Virginia, Mariam’s entry into the hospitality industry was on a dinner cruise ship, but her fascination with the creative aspects of event planning soon determined her career path.

Today, she is leads the Catering and Conference Services team at Four Seasons Hotel New York helping clients plan meetings, conferences, social events and weddings. Event space options range from banquet-size suites to more intimate salons and boardrooms, plus The Garden, a charming tree-filled space off the main lobby, and soon, the spectacular FIFTY7 event space overlooking 58th Street.
