ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE
From the expertise and experience of the corporate and regional level, the properties are given oversight and direction in all accounting disciplines.
TPG uses the Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry 11th edition to establish standardized reporting formats and account classifications in the preparation and presentation of their financial statements.
TPG properties follow established company polices and reporting requirements. The policies and procedures ensure all revenues are captured and reported properly, payroll and expenses are kept within budget and forecast, and property assets are protected. Time and attendance is monitored daily to the established schedules. The Time and Attendance system limit punches to the associates’ schedule.
The system is enhanced with Biometric detection to limit only the employee to punch in or out. Labor schedules are based on forecasted revenues each week and are adjusted during the week if forecasted demand changes. Declining balance expense checkbooks are used to keep expenses from exceeded budget and forecast. An on-line purchasing program has been instituted which requires on-line approval by the Director of Finance and General Manager prior to the order being placed and the hotel has established purchase order limits. If these limits are exceeded, Regional and or Corporate approval is needed. TPG uses an extensive internal audit program provided by a third party to ensure TPG Policies and Procedures are adhered to.
TPG uses an internet based accounting software package that allows regional and corporate access to daily results as well as drill down capabilities of the monthly results. TPG currently requires forecasting of the remainder of the year at the beginning of each month, a mid-month forecast is completed updating the current month. If revenues are declining from the beginning of the month, expenses and labor expenditures are reduced. The current month forecast is again completed the third week of the month. The property adjusts expense as much as possible to offset any declines in revenues with the requirement being at least 50% flex to the revenue decline.
With access to hundreds of comparable hotels, TPG is able to benchmark hotels to analyze where there are cost reduction opportunities.
Being responsive to guests’ needs is a passion shared and nurtured by everyone at TPG. We support an entrepreneurial culture and empower associates and managers to make decisions that improve guest experiences.

TPG leverages its Information Technology systems by consolidating major components crucial to hotel operations where possible. We are constantly working to implement long-term, flexible solutions that allow multiple properties to utilize the same infrastructure. A centralized help desk for IT support and vendor management typically eliminates the need for any IT staff on property. By partnering with a National IT firm, TPG is able to dispatch engineers quickly in all areas of the country should the need for onsite support arise.
For the purposes of risk mitigation, TPG critical information technology systems are physically spread out geographically. Spreading these major components out across several geographic locations reduces the effect a physical disaster would have on TPG operations nationwide.

TPG MARINAS DELIVERS A UNIQUE HOLISTIC APPROACH TO THE MARINA AND RESORTS INDUSTRY.
By combining decades of real estate and property management experience with powerful user-friendly booking engines and a highly efficient tech-enabled operating platform, TPG Marinas delivers an unmatched value proposition to its guests while creating value for its investment partners.
At its core, the business of marina operations thrives on hospitality, whether it’s through the convenience of reserving the perfect slip for vessels of any size, or securing an upscale overnight stay on land, TPG Marinas deploys best-in-class service, technology and hospitality to exceed guest expectations.
TPG Marinas is a family-owned business that seeks to acquire, manage and own high quality marinas and marina resorts that will be assets to their communities for generations to come. TPG Marinas focuses on value-add marinas, and marina-resorts which combine well-located marina assets with resort hotels or upland property that can accommodate services such as bars, restaurants, and swimming pools to create an enhanced experience to its guests, driving higher occupancy and rates.
Our aim is to create a nationally recognized portfolio of nautically anchored hospitality assets and standalone marinas that will attract repeat business and be the obvious first choice for new customers.
Our Unique Management Platform and Competitive Advantage
TPG Marinas benefits from the exceptional hospitality management experience of TPG Hotels and resorts. Whereas most marina owners are not hotel managers, and similarly, most hotel managers do not understand marinas, we see tremendous benefits and synergies by combining the two disciplines into an integrated management platform, bringing the same guest-centric customer service of a hotelier to the docks while the customer traffic from the marinas will help to support a more extensive amenity base than a boutique resort hotel might otherwise offer.
Sophisticated Technology Implementation
Marinas have historically been low-tech operations, relying on phone or radio communications between marina and customer, best-guess management of inventory, and a significant volume of cash transactions. New digital technology is available to make the management of marinas more efficient, scalable, and institutional. TPG Marinas will work closely with Dockwa, the leader in web-based marina reservations and PMS applications, which will enable improved revenue management and operational efficiency over prior ownership.
With over 30 years of experience in the real estate, hospitality, and private equity sectors, the principals of TPG Marinas have an extensive and diverse network of owners, investors, brokers, lenders, and advisors that will allow us to identify off-market opportunities.
