One of Sydney’s most celebrated luxury hotels has welcomed Jörg T. Böckeler as General Manager.
German-born Jörg brings more than 27 years’ experience in hotels and hospitality to InterContinental Sydney, following on from his most recent posting as General Manager of InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto – another significant property for IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) in Australasia.
An accomplished international luxury hotelier, Jörg has enjoyed an extended association with IHG, holding executive roles at several of the group’s flagship hotels across Europe, Africa and Australia.
Jörg’s broad knowledge and experience of IHG’s business and the InterContinental brand will be an invaluable asset to InterContinental Sydney.
“I am thrilled to join the team at InterContinental Sydney – a hotel known world-wide for delivering consistent best-in-service experiences to guests. I look forward to building on its reputation as one of Australia’s most appealing luxury city hotels,” Jörg said.
In addition to his General Manager role, Jörg has also been appointed as Area General Manager of Mulpha Hotels Australia – owners of InterContinental Sydney and InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.
Jörg relocated to Australia in 2011 with his wife and two young children. After hours, he enjoys gardening, the outdoors, diving, skiing, golf, good food and wine, and modern art.
He recently completed a Master of Business Administration (MBA Executive), and in 2011 was awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.
