Stéphane Colombina, fcsi
Managing Principal

Stéphane has been involved in the hospitality and foodservice business from an early age, working in various positions at his parent’s hotel. In college, taking some specialty design classes allowed him to merge his hospitality and foodservice knowledge with design. It has been a passion ever since. Prior to opening FDS Design Studio, he was a co founder and Principal at FoodStrategy and earlier in his career he was Director of Design at the Washington DC office of Cini Little. Over the years, Stéphane has successfully designed and managed a multitude of projects both domestically and internationally. His project experience ranges from hotels, museums, colleges & universities to corporate dining and other segments. He is detail oriented, creative, and efficient at delivering quality projects on schedule - a fact that has positively influenced the outcome of his projects and resulted in many satisfied and repeat clients.

He graduated from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration and the Hospitality Management School of Glion in Switzerland.  Stéphane is a professional member of the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI).
