Kevin Kalstad with Gecko Hospitality took all of the leg work out of identifying and pre-screening any potential candidates, allowing me to continue to focus on operations while looking for a new General Manager. We are located in a remote area and find it extremely difficult to find senior managers with the experience needed to run a facility of our volume. Within one month, Kevin had identified and put us in touch with a perfect fit for our organization. Should I have any future recruiting needs, I will not hesitate in contacting Kevin and the Gecko Hospitality organization.
