Pat Phanekham, the pro-active General Manager of the BaliHai Resort and Spa, will end his 5 year affiliation with that property to assume a new post as General Manager of the Stamford Plaza Brisbane, effective October 1, 2004.
Born in Laos and educated there and in Australia, Pat has proven a vital and interested member of Bali's local community during his stay on the island. He has served as the Chairman of the Bali Hotel Association, a committee member of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Bali Chapter in Bali, and Bali SKAL. He has also been an active member of the Rotary Club Nusa Dua, an organization known for its generous program of community support.
Pat's wife, Linda, has also been active in community service via her service as an officer of the Bali International Women's Association (BIWA).
Prior to his Bali assignment, Pat held various senior management positions with Holiday Inn, Southern Pacific Hotels, and ANA Enterprises.
Sad to be leaving Bali, Pat and his wife, Linda, are nonetheless looking forward to his new challenge in Brisbane and the opportunity to re-unite for the first time in 10 years under a single roof with their three daughters now living there.
