Adam McDonald Joins InterContinental Bali

Australian Hotelier Brings an Impressive Range of Hospitality Skills to His New Role at InterContinental Resort, Bali.

(8/22/2009) InterContinental Bali Resort have appointed Adam McDonald as Resort Manager, a role that will see him assume overall responsibility for the operations of the 418-room Bali property. He reports directly to General Manager, Kamal Chaoui.

Australian-born, Adam has spent his entire career working in the luxury hotel sector. He joins InterContinental Bali Resort straight from a 4-year stint as Resident Manager at the InterContinental Sydney where he secured a familiarity with InterContinental brand standards and corporate guidelines.

A graduate from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology with an Applied Science Degree in Hospitality, Adam started his career at Hilton On The Park, Melbourne in 1991 and was promoted through the ranks via a succession of finance-orientated positions culminating in the role of Business Analyst. Adam then joined the pre-opening team for Hotel Lindrum as Executive Assistant Manager. That assignment gave him fundamental responsibility in setting up all areas of operations including Finance, Sales, Human Resources and Food & Beverage.

In 2001, he moved to The Westin Melbourne Hotel as Food & Beverage Manager heading a multi-million dollars segment of that hotel's operation. Later he was appointed Director of Rooms, providing the chance to widen his already substantial hotel managerial skills.

An avid sportsman, Adam has played an active role in Australian Rules Football throughout his career. He has officiated as a Boundary Umpire in national matches for many years, demanding a high level of fitness and commitment as well as quick decisions under pressure. A dedicated Father and Husband, he says he enjoys taking his beautiful girls, including his wife, out for breakfast, which he considers to be the best meal of the day.

Regarding his Bali appointment, Adam commented: "I feel extremely privileged to be involved with an iconic property like InterContinental Bali Resort. I believe the team is a very special group of people who bring the InterContinental brand to life. I am looking forward to experiencing everything that the island has to offer."
