InterContinental Bali Resort is pleased to announce several promotions within its Sales & Marketing team as part of InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) ‘Room to Grow’ philosophy.
Margi Tiarani Mesia has recently been appointed to the role of Senior Digital Marketing Manager. Margi started with the company as BDM E-Commerce three years ago. She has done an excellent job in stamping the IHG mark in the digital area and has rightly earned her promotion to Senior Digital Marketing Manager. She has completed eCornell certification for New Media and will continue to pursue new opportunities in the dynamic digital arena to set new standards for the Resort.
“The digital world is an ever-changing subject,” says Margi, “and I’m very excited to be the practitioner of something that is most definitely leading us into the future.”
A recent development in the Marketing Department has seen Dewi Karmawan, former Assistant Director of Public Relations, promoted to Director of Public Relations and Marketing Communications. Dewi has been instrumental in driving InterContinental Bali Resort’s media and PR activity, as well as gaining prominent recognition for the Resort, which achieved many awards in 2014 and 2015. She will continue to focus on optimising all media communication channels and strategies to ensure that the Resort continues to maintain its premium luxury positioning.
“I am pleased to grow my career path with the company as I have been given the opportunity to learn a great deal during the last two years,” says Dewi. “In addition to handling printed media, one of my important roles now is in handling digital media as well,” she explains, “because everything these days has shifted into digital technology.”
The Sales Department now has a new Director of Sales – Wholesale. Arya Saputra has been with InterContinental Bali Resort for seven years, starting as Senior Sales Manager before moving into the role of Assistant Director of Sales for Wholesale in 2011. He will now be responsible, along with his team, for driving the Resort’s wholesale business from existing markets and seeking new opportunities in emerging markets.
“I am excited to continue my journey with this great brand and an amazing team with this new role and responsibility,” states Arya.
Vivi Rumadana started her career with the Reservation Department in 2003 and later moved into the role of Assistant Director of Sales for MICE. She has now been promoted to Director of Sales – MICE where she will be responsible for driving this very important segment. She will be overseeing the MICE department and, along with her team, will seek out new opportunities as the Resort grows this segment.
“With the professionalism of our MICE team, along with the management’s support, I believe I can drive and lead the team to finish 2015 on very positive note, while also starting to build a strong result for 2016,” says Vivi.
“I am delighted that we have such talent within our own Sales and Marketing Team that we can promote to these critical roles,” adds Ms Kamal Haer, Area Director of Sales and Marketing, Bali Resorts. “These appointments further strengthen a great winning team at InterContinental Bali Resort and strongly support IHG’s ‘Room to Grow’ strategy. I would like to congratulate Margi, Dewi, Arya and Vivi, and I am confident that they will take their areas to new heights.”
‘Room to Grow’ IHG supports and develops their people to pursue significant careers. This is achieved through personal development plans, structured learning, on-the-job reviews, and the IHG job referral programme.
