Our Background Story

The Story of Serge and Topline Group



SERGE ASENSIO
Managing Director
Lynchburg, Virginia
Serge was born in Argentina but grew up in the USA. His family’s travel business spurred his interest in the airline and lodging industries. Serge graduated from Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration in 1981. He then went to work for Pannell Kerr Forster (PKF) doing hotel feasibility studies. In 1985, he joined the Feasibility Department at Marriott International. Before he retired from Marriott, Serge was Vice President of Sales Planning and Analysis. In this role, he helped Marriott to answer three questions : 1) How many sales people should we have?; 2) Where should they be located?; 3) Who should they be calling on?

Serge made the decision to retire from Marriott in 1998. He relocated to Lynchburg, Virginia so he could take his “big city, big company” hotel industry expertise and offer it to clients at small town prices.

He was a pioneer in assembling a "virtual team" of hotel industry experts and technology heavyweights. The virtual team generates low overhead, and allows Topline Group to pass the savings along to clients.
