Wyndham Taps HighPointe Group for Rooftop Portfolio

HighPointe Group, LLC, a leading
telecommunications site consulting and management company, today announced
that it has been selected by Wyndham International to provide rooftop
management services for its North American portfolio of hotels. HighPointe
is immediately providing Wyndham with its full suite of services,
including rooftop leasing, site assessment, site audits, RF engineering,
contract negotiations, accounting and 24-hour access management.
Wyndham selected HighPointe for its single focus on generating additional
income from the rooftops it manages, bringing to bear a proactive
management style and service philosophy. Wyndham will also benefit from
HighPointe’s long-standing relationships with all major wireless and
two-way carriers and broadcasters.

“We chose HighPointe because their model represents an aggressive, focused
way of doing business in rooftop consulting,” said Jim Dixon, director,
national accounts purchasing for Wyndham International. “HighPointe has
demonstrated an ability to effectively market our portfolio to
telecommunication providers. We also appreciate the extra effort and
entrepreneurial spirit they bring to the assignment.”

“We’re excited about the opportunity to represent one of the world’s
premier branded hotel companies,” said Jud Pankey, president of
HighPointe. “Their portfolio is diverse and well-suited for a number of
wireless and wire- line applications. Wyndham has enormous potential to
meet the renewed need for additional cell sites. This is an ideal example
of how our model of focusing solely on rooftop management—eliminating
any potential conflicts of interest—is attractive to a landlord with
national presence who wants to increase revenues from the rooftop.”

HighPointe, which manages more than 3,400 sites throughout North America,
specializes in the unique service needs associated with wireless and
wire-line collocation. Its team of managers is ideally positioned to
mediate fairly and efficiently to best meet the specific needs of both
carriers and building owners and able to more quickly respond to the needs
of prospective rooftop tenants.

“HighPointe continues to selectively grow and expand the number of
buildings under management because of our fresh approach to rooftop
consulting,” said Pankey. “Our emphasis is on driving additional revenues
through transparent and effective management, providing better customer
service for carriers and owners, and applying our deep knowledge of site
management practices to deliver creative solutions for our tenants and
