He has extensive experience in hotel management and an established record of leading teams to deliver great results.

Stamper added, I am delighted to return to the newly reopened InterContinental Abu Dhabi, where just over 17 years ago I began my career with IHG. Both the city and IHG have evolved and grown extensively in that time and I look forward to the new challenges ahead.

Stamper has held other General Manager positions at both Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn London Heathrow, as well as managerial roles at Athenaeum InterContinental Athens and Semiramis InterContinental Cairo.
