I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Fred Hirschovits, Founder and CEO of Twenty/Twenty Worldwide Hospitality, LLC, back in 2004. Since that time, Fred and our firm, Pinkerton & Laws have collaborated on four (4) successful hotel projects. Fred is one of the most unique individuals I have met in our business. He combines technical hands on knowledge of Hotel Management and Development, while being blessed with a charismatic personality and an exceptional feel for what works…simply said, “Fred knows how to get deals done”. Over the years,Fred has become a trusted business partner and friend. For anyone considering working with Fred, I could not give him a higher recommendation.

As the Franchise Service Director for La Quinta Inns in Florida, I have had the pleasure to work with Fred Hirschovits and his Team at the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Bonita Springs, Florida.

We have been associated with TTWWH for the past 6 years. This company manages our USA holdings. The acquisition, renovation and operational results have been excellent. Mr. Hirschovits has appreciated the value of our holdings in a very short period of time. TTWWH has increased our cash flow by 20% and 35% respectively in three years at our U.S. properties. The company implements great sales, marketing and business strategies; strict accounting and financial controls which obviously have been successful. Due to this excellent relations with Intercontinental Hotels Group in Atlanta, he helped us secure the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza flags for our German hotels.
