Mana’olana Partners, the ownership entity of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Residences, Honolulu established by real estate development firm Salem Partners, has appointed industry leader Ian MacLeod as Director of Sales for The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Honolulu. With sales for the 99 residences on track to launch in early 2019, MacLeod will lead sales efforts for the iconic addition to Honolulu’s evolving skyline.
MacLeod brings more than two decades of experience having managed the sales and marketing for numerous master-planned luxury resort developments and high-end urban projects throughout the United States and Canada.
“With a robust background in luxury real estate combined with unrivaled sales and marketing expertise, Ian is a terrific addition to our all-star team,” said James Ratkovich, Co-Managing Member of Mana’olana Partners. “He joins us at a pivotal time as we prepare to launch sales for the catalytic building that will be a towering symbol of everything to come in the neighborhood. We’re confident that Ian will expertly cultivate and enhance our presence in the high-end luxury market.”
MacLeod began his career in the resort industry working with Intrawest Corporation in Whistler, B.C., where he was a manager for the Whistler Mountain Ski School and then later worked in sales and marketing for the real estate division where he became a Real Estate Launch Specialist with Sapera & Playground working on projects in Whistler and California.
In 2001, MacLeod established his own real estate sales and marketing business, taking on projects in Hawaii, Washington State, Arizona and California which include The Ritz Carlton Paradise Valley, Terranea Resort, Veranda Beach, and many others throughout B.C. in Vancouver, Kelowna, Big White Ski Resort, Predator Ridge Golf Resort, Okanagan Golf Club and Silver Star Ski Resort. He also owns and manages Luxuryhomes.com, which is one of the top luxury real estate websites in the world.
MacLeod holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in marketing from Simon Fraser University and sits on the Board of Directors for AREAA Global (Asian Real Estate Association of America).
“Honolulu is regarded as the most cosmopolitan city in the world and with the Mandarin Oriental being perhaps one of the most transformative projects that the city has ever seen, two remarkable forces are joined,” said Mr. MacLeod. “I’m honored to be working alongside a world-class team as they bring to life a new premier Honolulu address for our future residents who will have the opportunity to own a piece of Honolulu’s coveted skyline.”
