We are not just a management company that collects fees; we are owners and direct investors as well. This makes us appreciate our client's perspective, puts our money into the market, and in some cases also allows us to co-invest with our partners and clients to ensure we also carry an investment stake. As specialists in our field, we understand that each project needs a unique approach and perspective. Accordingly, value needs to come from every angle and sometimes it is not in the form of a direct Management Contract. In these instances, a Hotel or Restaurant Group may have an existing multi-year Management Contract already in place with a Brand (Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott, etc.). This can be a wonderful partnership for principals and their investors, but without experienced and direct oversight of the Management Company it is rare for an Owner to be able to push for the best and get the unique representation each property deserves.
