Who we are


PT Bale Gede Internasional has a small but highly capable management team and concentrates on a large talented local building team. We have deliberately kept the management size of PT Bale Gede Internasional small so that we are not burdened with high overheads, thus enabling us to offer high quality and service at a highly competitive price.

 

Ketut Mariani

PT Bale Gede Internasional was started and is headed by Ketut Mariani, a Balinese woman, who apart from taking care of the Balinese spiritual side of the company, runs the Administration Division comprising manpower, purchasing, accounting and logistics. She grew up in a family of carpenters and often is found in the factory with tools in hand.
