GHM Appoints New GMs In Bali

SINGAPORE — Two seasoned general managers from far-flung GHM properties are each steering for new appointments on the Island of the Gods this month.

From Andermatt, Switzerland, Alain Bachmann is moving from his previous role as general manager of the award-winning Chedi Andermatt to The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, Ubud, one of the most highly acclaimed properties on Bali.

And from his most recent stint as pre-opening task force for GHM development projects, Giulio D’Alberto will take charge of the group’s most recently opened and most expansive property, The Chedi Sakala.

“We’d like to think that, in today’s world, a general manager’s career as a hotelier requires cross-exposure in a myriad of environments and cultures. We are glad for the opportunity to create that within our management team,” said GHM President Hans R. Jenni.

In Switzerland, Bachmann ushered the 105-room Chedi Andermatt onto the world stage as one of 2013’s most significant debuts, including recognition on Travel + Leisure’s It List and Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List.

Prior to his work in Andermatt, the Swiss native honed his management skills at the Peninsula Chicago, the Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C. and the Ritz-Carlton Moscow.

D’Alberto joined GHM as director of finance at an Italian property once operated by GHM, The Chedi Milan. In 2012, he relocated to Asia for work on GHM developments and was subsequently involved as part of the pre-opening task force at The Chedi Andermatt.
