About Us

We know hospitality, inside and out

Since 2000, Gecko Hospitality has been building high-performing teams for restaurants, hotels, casinos, country clubs and resorts that mean business. Our recruiters began their careers in hospitality and know firsthand what (and whom) it takes to run a successful team.

Our approach

Our approach

It’s pretty simple. Gecko Hospitality teams up with a client, like you, to understand your company culture, business vision, management philosophy and compensation structure. Together, we hash out the scope of the position(s) you require and agree on key skills and qualities candidates need to be successful with your company.

We focus on what’s key for your ideal candidate and use our almost 20 years of experience to narrow down, thoroughly screen, interview and present the best of the best to you.

Once we’ve found your perfect candidate(s) and you’re ready to make an offer, we’ll walk you and your new employees through a smooth and productive transition.

  3. Gecko Hospitality requires expressed consent by candidates to be presented to a client for a position.
  4. All confidential client information is kept confidential.
