Robert Friedl

Montage Kapalua Bay, Hawaii, has hired Robert Friedl as general manager.

Friedl has over 30 years of experience in hospitality industry leadership roles. In his position as general manager, he will oversee the day-to-day operations of the beachfront resort.

Prior to his hiring at Montage Kapalua Bay, Friedl was vice president at MacNaughton Hospitality in Honolulu. Friedl is not a first-time employee at Montage Kapalua Bay, though.

In 2008 he took the position as resort manager for The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, Kapalua Bay.

“I am pleased to welcome Robert Friedl back to Montage Kapalua Bay,” said Jason Herthel, president and chief operating officer of Montage International. “With many years of experience within the luxury segment and his familiarity with the community and culture of Hawaii, we are very fortunate to have Robert as a part of the Montage family.”
