VISIT PHILADELPHIA® announced today that it has welcomed James Adamson, general manager of the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia, to its board.
“We are happy that James has joined our board,” said Manuel Stamatakis, VISIT PHILADELPHIA board chairman. “He has many years of hotel management experience, and we look forward to tapping into his knowledge base as we develop marketing plans and strategies for VISIT PHILADELPHIA moving forward.”
For 14 years now, Adamson has worked for Kimpton properties, beginning in 2003 when he served as a guest service agent at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Salt Lake City. He quickly moved up the ranks there and relocated to Washington, DC to work as the opening general manager at the Kimpton Morrison House Hotel and later at the Kimpton Hotel Helix. In 2012, Adamson made the move to Philadelphia. Here he has served as the general manager of the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia and now occupies the same role at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia.
A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, Adamson earned a dual degree in Japanese and Asian Studies from the University of Utah and was the recipient of a one-year scholarship from the Japanese government to attend Kansai Gaikokugo Daigaku.
VISIT PHILADELPHIA’s board members are leaders in business, hospitality, government and academia and include representatives of Governor Tom Wolf, Mayor Jim Kenney and City Council President Darrell Clarke.
