Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay Introduces New Resort Manager Edward Linsley. Four Seasons veteran brings enthusiasm for new cultures and strong leadership to new role.
Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay is pleased to announce the appointment of Edward Linsley as Resort Manager.
A Four Seasons veteran with more than two decades of hotel and resort experience, Linsley is enthusiastic about his first position in Asia, after crossing the Pacific from his most recent posting in Hawaii.
A native of Pennsylvania, Linsley began his Four Seasons career in 1990 at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. Thanks to his stellar performance, energy and perseverance, he rose steadily through the ranks, assuming various Food & Beverage management roles at Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, Four Seasons Hotel Dublin and Four Seasons Resort Nevis.
Determined to advance to senior leadership roles, he received a certificate in Financial Management: Operations Decision Making from Cornell University, School of Hotel Administration, and soon after, in 2007, he was promoted to Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Houston, and then Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay in Hawaii.
As Resort Manager at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, Linsley is primarily responsible for overseeing the property’s day-to-day operations, working closely with all departments – from spa and concierge to engineering and human resources. Fueled by a passion to provide the ultimate customer experience, Linsley has a keen sense of guests’ needs and responds accordingly.
Linsley maintains a passionate focus on community welfare and is a long-standing member of the World Affairs Council. He devotes private time to community-focused activities, including the Muntigunung village revitalisation project, an initiative of Four Seasons Resorts Bali, in collaboration with an independent non-profit organisation, Verein Zukunft fur Kinder.
With an insatiable appetite for world cultures, Linsley has quickly assimilated himself into the local life and traditions of Bali – discovering the island on his bike and through his camera lens. He is eager to encourage Bali tourism through his active role as a resort representative on the Bali Hotel Association advisory committee.
