Adipoetra Halim, director of the Melbourne-based Halim Group that owns the hotel, said Michael will continue to focus on the success that the hotel is currently enjoying by revitalising the dining options, enhancing the room product and driving quality, which the hotel is so highly regarded for.
Michael joined Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong as resident manager in 2003 and was then appointed acting general manager. In 2004 he was appointed general manager of Mandarin Oriental, Munich and, in 2007, general manager of Mandarin Oriental, Macau, where he was responsible for assisting with the sale of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group's interest in the property and successfully re-branding it as Grand Lapa. He was appointed general manager of The Excelsior in 2010.
