Swiss Hospitality Partner
about us

Swiss Hospitality Partners (SHP) is a consulting company specialized in hospitality. It was founded in 2009 by Alexander & Michael Manz and Dario Bertucci, all three partners had an extensive knowledge of the hospitality sector and an MBA in Marketing and Finance. The Manz brothers are members of the renowned Manz family, which is one of the last Swiss private hotel owners and has been successfully operating hotels for over 120 years.

After 3 years of hospitality consulting, SHP has been able to develop a unique view towards the hospitality business. By separating the real estate from the hotel management business, the company is able to drive value within both segments, thus maximizing the whole asset value in the long run.
The main target for the partners is to find an optimum model for value creation in both business segments, which is based on the following conditions:

In operational hotel management

  • Hotel management is a “business”, with the objective to produce a certain return over time
  • The degree of profitability of returns in “business” is dependent on the processes and the efficiency thereof, used to produced the expected sale result.

In asset management

  • Hotellerie is also “asset management” with the objective to produce a certain value over time
  • The “asset management” is done through control over “investing, financing, maintenance and design“ with a smart management of the business life cycle
  • The value increase of the „asset“ is dependent on the investment processes and the strategy thereof, used to maximize future cash flows

SHP believes in the combination of operational hotel management and hotel asset ownership, to achieve an optimum model for “long term real asset value”.
