Over the years I have known and worked with Rodger Powell, I found Rodger to be innovative, knowledgeable, more-over practical and efficient in his approach to asset management of hotels, to drive solid returns for the investor. We have also found THSA to be diligent and detailed in undertaking in-depth and focused research on specific markets, identifying their trading potential.

Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of contracting Rodger to perform a range of assignments for Mantra Group and more recently for private equity acquisition plans. Rodger’s understanding of the market and his ability to condense the complex assignments into meaningful outcomes is second to none in the industries he specialised in. I thoroughly recommend Rodger as a professional that delivers tangible results.

Rodger has been working with me over the last 4 years managing my hotels. It has been a good partnership. Rodger has added value by always thinking about the market that we operate in and combined with his deep knowledge of the operations of the hotels, has been key to increasing the hotels’ performances. We have also teamed up together looking at acquisitions and I have found his insight, drive and work ethic has greatly assisted me in the analysis of these acquisitions.

Rodger has an uncommon breadth and depth of experience across multiple aspects of hospitality and tourism. That alone differentiates him from most in his field, but it’s the focus and passion with which he applies it that really delivers great results for his clients.

THSA’s deep experience and detailed analytic capability were a given; what really impressed me was their understanding of the market and competitive environment, and the commercial insight they brought around the viability of a new project. Will definitely work with the team again.

We engaged THSA to undertake a market demand study and financial feasibility report for a hotel as part of a larger mixed use development on the waterfront in North Queensland including a large marine transport and tourism precinct. Despite the onset of Covid19 just following their appointment Rodger and Heather delivered a high quality report ahead of schedule, on budget, that exceeded our expectations. We look forward to working with them on future projects.

THSA’s independent review of the ultra-luxury lodge ownership and competitive market place was a quality piece of work that has significantly contributed to Baillie Lodges (owned by KSL Capital Partners) understanding of this niche, high yielding segment and the subsequent creation of the strategic M&A plan. Rodger Powell’s intimate understanding of our investment objectives, the unique investment thesis for this asset sub-class and his personal involvement in the process from start to finish were central to the production of a well scoped, thoroughly researched and highly relevant management tool that was delivered at project completion. We will be using THSA again!

Tourism Noosa engaged THSA for a complex and short-turnaround tourism economics and policy project. It was completed on time, on budget and the report demonstrated an exceptional depth of understanding of the tourism industry, tourism economics and Government policy.
